The program will feature Robert Stanfill, M.D., a skilled women’s imaging radiologist and board member for Radiology Regional who will speak about the importance of annual screening mammograms and cancer awareness. Board-certified by the American Board of Radiology, Stanfill received his undergraduate degree from Drake University and medical degree from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine.
