The 2nd Annual Christmas Goes Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Summit was held at the Meharry Medical College Kresge Learning Resource Center on December 15, 2018. The purpose of the annual event was to gather women who are breast cancer survivors, consider themselves at risk for the disease or whose lives have been altered in some way by breast cancer. This event also helped women learn how to be an advocate for breast cancer education, screening and treatment among their family and friends.
LIVE! Just as You Are, a community-based culturally tailored program, is aimed at providing breast cancer information and awareness about mammography screening through a coalition model that includes breast cancer organizations, community-based agencies, and academic partners.
This program is funded in part by the Tennessee Department of Health Office of Minority Health and Disparities Elimination, the Self Made Health Network and Meharry Medical College.
