The reading room for Breast Imaging at Emory University Hospital Midtown is getting a makeover just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, making October 1 even more exciting for the hardworking Breast Imaging team.

New adjustable height work stations and new desk configurations employ ergonomic best practices, while a wash of deep grey paint on the walls and other aesthetic improvements create a more inviting workplace. Together these changes will make the reading room a more comfortable work environment for Midtown’s team of breast imaging experts.
