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.
