Any young professionals out there looking to fill some free time this summer? We’d love for motivated, passionate volunteers to join our Komen Young Professionals (KYP) Committee. If you’re interested in learning what the KYP is all about, we hope you and a friend can plan on attending our Second Quarter Meeting on Wednesday, June 22 from 6-7 pm at the Komen Columbus Office.
KYP members will be on hand to share what they’ve been up to, and we’ll also hear from a special community health program that benefits directly from your Race registration dollars and donations.
Whether you ran, walked or slept in for this year’s Race for the Cure, you’re helping to support local programs like the Sister Screen Saver Program through The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, Diversity Enhancement Program.
In an effort to reduce the health disparity in breast cancer among African American women, this program aims to provide on-site mobile mammography screening services at local community churches and use culturally tailored information to educate African-American women about breast cancer prevention and early detection. The program will also be able to provide information on local resources where free or low-cost mammograms and support services can be obtained.
Learn more about this program and how you can get involved in the fight against breast cancer on Wednesday, June 22. We’ll provide snacks and special raffle prizes. Hope to see you then!
