RIA owns and manages the Invision Sally Jobe (ISJ) network of imaging centers in partnership with HealthONE. Breast care is a large part of ISJ’s services to the community, and, as a result, ISJ sponsors many organizations and events related to breast cancer awareness, preventive breast services and breast cancer treatment.
Susan B. Komen Foundation
Invision Sally Jobe is a noted supporter of the Susan G. Komen Denver Affiliate, advancing the foundation’s efforts to provide breast health education, as well as breast cancer screening and treatment, to uninsured and underinsured individuals in the Denver area. The Invision Sally Jobe Race for the Cure team annually includes physicians, staff, patients and their families and friends. An ambitious fundraising goal is set each year to reach the common mission shared with the Komen organization - that of a world without breast cancer. Radiologists from Invision Sally Jobe and Radiology Imaging Associates additionally partner with other community physicians devoted to breast health through Doctors for the Cure® as a demonstration of support and solidarity during the event’s closing ceremony. Support is further demonstrated at the annual Komen Pink Tie event during October – Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Bright Pink (www.brightpink.org) is the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women while providing support for high-risk individuals. Invision Sally Jobe’s Medical Director, Dr. Lora Barke, and Certified Genetic Counselor, Mary Freivogel, were instrumental in founding the Bright Pink Denver Chapter. Mary Freivogel serves as the Denver Medical Professional Ally and supports the chapter in various ways, including fundraising efforts, educational presentations, and outreach events (which provide support for local high-risk young women). Invision Sally Jobe partnered with Bright Pink in early 2012 to sponsor the first annual “For the Women We Love” event at The Brown Palace hotel. This successful high tea celebration honored breast cancer survivors and their family and friends.
