Hologic, Inc.’s Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Steve MacMillan, joined a number of employees to ring the Nasdaq Opening Bell for the 14th consecutive year on Oct. 2 to mark the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Hologic has expanded its product portfolio significantly in recent months through insight-driven innovation and strategic acquisitions to address the entire continuum of breast cancer diagnosis and care.
