Breast Health Education Guide - Prevent Cancer Foundation
Updated in , this user-friendly educational tool has been used in communities far and wide to reach young women with information about breast health and breast cancer. The guide was developed to use in interactive group sessions—whether in person or virtual—and to encourage information sharing with female relatives who are age-appropriate for screening. An updated Spanish-language version of the guide is also underway. From urban schools in Minnesota and health fairs in New York to a health center in Bermuda, educators are using the guide in schools and community settings to teach breast health to young women. Breast Health Education for Young Women has many roots, none more significant than Project Early Awareness, a breast health program for public high school students in Washington, DC, which has one of the highest state-level breast cancer mortality rates in the US.
