What needs to get done
Every 2 minutes a woman in the US is diagnosed with Breast Cancer and every 13 minutes a women dies from this disease. And according to American Cancer Society, Black women are 40% more likely to die from breast cancer. With this in mind, our goal is to educate young girls and women about Breast Health, Breast Cancer, Early Dection and Prevention. We are looking for someone who can assist with designing our educational program. This will include creating engagement activities, a slide presentation, and marketing materials.

What you will get out of it
