Care For The Girls
Care For The Girls™
Did You Know? African Americans have the highest breast cancer mortality rates of any racial or ethnic group. Actually, we do not have the highest rate of overall incidence - it’s just that when we are diagnosed, it is often at a far more serious stage and frequently the outcomes are more negative than those experienced by women of other racial/ethnic groups.
What You Can Do!
➢ TALK TO YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER TODAY ABOUT AN ANNUAL MAMMOGRAPHY SCREENING.
• Schedule one before the end of 2013
➢ GET A CLINICAL BREAST EXAM.
• This annual examination of your breast is performed during a regular checkup….each year….by a gynecologist,
internist, or other health care provider. Schedule a checkup this week.
➢ KNOW YOUR BREAST!
YOU CONDUCT AN EXAM OF YOUR OWN BREAST MONTHLY.
DO THIS REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOUR HAVE HEARD IN THE NEWS.
• Often times you will be the first to detect a lump. Examine your breast monthly standing up and laying down. Learn the
most effective way to conduct this exam.
• Know what is “normal” for you.
• If you have questions, ask your health care provider!
➢ TELL ANOTHER WOMAN WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED TODAY
EQL developed a three hour workshop training to encourage women to: 1) know their bodies, 2) notice changes, 3) and see a healthcare professional regularly for a physical and mammography screening. EQL collaborates with Community Partners For Better Health through a grant it co-wrote to the American Cancer Society and the Nevada Cancer Institute to host its Care For The Girls™ Workshop in churches in Southern Nevada.
