Posted 3 months ago by Emily Garhart

Everyone would agree that Breast Cancer Prevention is even better than a cure, wouldn't they? To hear the latest science about the possibilities for prevention, join us for an informative talk from two leading experts and find out what you can do to protect the health of Alaskans.

This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome!
The lecture will be at Alaska Pacific University's Atwood Center, Rasmuson Hall.
Meet with the speakers during the Reception at 6:30pm!
Refreshments provided.
The Lecture will begin at 7pm.

Nurses and community health aides have an especially important role in helping Alaskans make choices that eliminate contaminants linked to cancer from their homes and to take action that will lead to public policies that reduce breast cancer risk. Our special guests Katie Huffling and Catherine Dodd, both of whom are highly respected nurses and influential leaders, will be bringing their experience and knowledge on what steps individuals, communities, and institutions can take to reduce the incidence of breast cancer in Alaskans.
Nursing CEs are jointly provided by the Alaska Nurses Association and Alaska Community Action on Toxics
