Kernersville as well as two locations in Winston-Salem now have the ability to
round up their purchases to the nearest dollar in support of the Novant Health
Forsyth Medical Center Foundation’s efforts to improve community access to 3-D mammograms.
Money raised during

that will be equipped with 3-D technology and allows the Novant Health Breast
Center to expand community mammography services in the Triad. 3-D technology

The current campaign is with Panera Bread’s largest franchisee
Covelli Enterprises and lasts through Feb. 28. Novant Health is the first
health system in Winston-Salem to offer 3-D technology on a mobile unit.
