Komen Columbus Educational Programs

 

Know Your Girls 

Our goal is to increase breast health awareness and decrease breast cancer in the community by working with you. We need your help to reach the members of our community to make sure women and men are aware of risk factors, their families history, resources in the community and to empower them to take charge. Did you know black women in the U.S. are 40% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women? Being a part of Know Your Girls gives you the opportunity to host an event for your community during Minority Health Month. It’s your event with our support. Komen Columbus will provide you with educational materials, giveaway items and survivor certificate for your event.
