Free workshops available on breast cancer in English and Spanish

These days, almost everyone knows someone with breast cancer, but how much do people know about their own risk?  Sisters United in Health/Hermanas Unidas en la Salud is a program dedicated to helping women understand the myths and truths about breast cancer and what they can do to lead healthier lives. In lively interactive workshops, health educators Angelica Medina, MA, and Naomi Cunningham, MA, help participants learn about the factors that can increase risk, best tools for early detection and resources available.

Programs can be conducted in English and Spanish. For more information on scheduling a free workshop, call 800-559-6348.
