Breast Health 101

BH101.jpgThere are lots of things in life that are scary. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – Atlantic Region doesn’t think breast health should be one of them. Earlier this month, we launched our new public education program, Breast Health 101, to put breast health and mammograms into perspective for Atlantic Canadians. The program theme is – Mammograms…they’re not that bad.

What is Breast Health 101?
 

Breast Health 101 is an exciting, one-hour educational opportunity, delivered to small groups in the workplace, community centres, hospitals, university dorms …locations are determined by where the need lies. It’s a chance to talk about breast health and mammograms. We also dispel common myths and we encourage our participants to take action themselves. The sessions are interactive and fun.

At the end of each session, participants receive a small package with valuable information to take home. Our hope is that they will share this information with other women and men in their lives.

Visit www.breasthealth101.ca to find out more about the program, and to book a session in your community.
