The Center for Breast Health at Carroll Hospital was awarded a $50,000 grant from Susan G. Komen Maryland to establish Embrace, a breast cancer survivor program to enhance the center's care of breast cancer survivors.

Dr. Dona Hobart, breast surgeon and medical director of the Center for Breast Health, received the grant during an award presentation in March where Komen Maryland awarded more than $1,000,000 to 17 grant programs across Maryland for the 2016 fiscal year.

The grant will be used to support breast cancer survivors within two years of finishing their treatment. A portion of the grant will go toward providing a nurse health navigator who will offer one-on-one support to survivors at the center, including education, support and guidance, and assistance with setting and achieving individual health and wellness goals.

In addition, the grant will be directed toward creating various support programs for breast cancer survivors including weight management, massage, acupuncture, yoga and fitness programs, and a survivor retreat expected to take place in 2016.
