Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast cancer is a leading deadly disease in women and men of all ages; it is important for students of UTA to gain knowledge about this disease. The health service center and Susan G Komen set up different booths in the UC to provide students and staff information about Breast Cancer Awareness month. The booths had models of women and mens breast with different lumps, to give students an idea of what to look for when doing a self examination. Susan G Komen gave facts and information on men and women of all ages, statistics of the disease along with helpful handouts for students and staff to take the correct steps on how to get screened. Nutrition was something that was encouraged because having healthy nutrition will help individuals build their immune systems and have a more stable body. Different prizes were given as tokens of appreciation for those who attended the event as well as different healthy foods.
