on everyone's lips this month.

0:43

Have you had a mammogram this year?

0:45

Make sure you pop the question

0:47

0:50

The six-week initiative makes its return this month.

0:52

0:56

in hundreds of women making their health a top priority.

1:00

1:03

1:19

October is also a great time to think about protecting

1:22

yourself from this year's flu season.

1:25

Here are some important tips for the upcoming season.

1:27

First up, only the injectable

1:30

flu shot is recommended this year.

1:33

Now, it takes about two weeks for your body

1:34

to be protected once you get the vaccine,

1:37

so get it as soon as it's available.

1:40

Now, nearly everyone six months of age

1:42

and older should get the vaccine

1:45

and some kids may need multiple doses.

1:47

Parents, you can find out which kids those are

1:50

by following your child's doctor's advice.

1:53

Thank you to Dr. Christina Gagliardo from

1:55

Goryeb Children's Hospital for sharing these crucial tips.

1:58

AtlantiCast.org has even more details.

2:01

Atlantic Health System Children's Health

2:03

is committed to giving every child the

2:05

best possible family-centered care.

2:08

And that care is now found at two brand new facilities.

2:12

First, some outpatient services previously located at

2:15

Goryeb Children's Hospital have a new location

2:17

right across the street at 55 Madison Avenue in Morristown.

2:22

The new space has free parking, a lactation room

2:25

and waiting room designed for

2:26

everyone from babies to young adults.

2:30

And Chilton Medical Center is proud to announce

2:32

its new Children's Center opening this month,

2:35

featuring a combined pediatric emergency department

2:38

and an inpatient care unit.

2:40

Families are going to have one family-friendly

2:43

facility to meet all of their needs.

2:45

Access to pediatric specialists at

2:47

Goryeb Children's Hospital will be available too.

2:50

Atlantic Health System is committed to building

2:52

healthier communities by offering

2:53

the latest in healthcare technology to all of our patients.

2:58

What you're looking at is the most

2:59

advanced MRI available today and patients

3:03

at Overlook Medical Center are

3:04

the first in the world to use it.

3:06

The 3 Tesla MRI adapts to the shape

3:09

of any body part and it produces

3:11

ultrafine images with greater accuracy and speed.

3:15

Now the wide opening on the MRI and free breathing ability

3:19

gives patients more room and comfort.

3:22

Now that's gonna mean better quality scans for doctors,

3:25

fewer re-scans and better care for our patients.

3:29

Atlantic Health System is committed to helping

3:31

all of our team members reach their

3:32

fullest individual potential too.

3:35

The Leadership Development for Early Career Women Program

3:38

is part of a partnership with Rutgers University.

3:41

The six-month training course

3:42

ended with a recent panel discussion,

3:44

where aspiring women had a chance to learn

3:46

from their peers and mentors in leadership.

3:49

Every woman who finished the course

3:51

developed their own career plan with goals

3:53

and specific ways to achieve them.

3:56

Congrats to all of them.

3:58

And finally we'd like to recognize another

4:01

special moment that matters here at Atlantic Health System.

4:03

We want to send a huge shout-out to four specific people,

4:07

Michelle McGrogin, Debra Lucitorto,

4:09

Hannah Truncalli, and Patricia Dunn.

4:12

They're all From Community Health and the

4:13

Foundation at Chilton Medical Center.

4:15

They went down to Eva's Village in Paterson not too long ago

4:18

to serve meals to folks in need.

4:20

The four served lunch to more than 180 people, amazing work.

4:26

Thank you so much for your commitment to building

4:28

healthier communities in so many different ways.
