Health e-Tools: October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Each month Quality Insights puts together a packet of tools to help you communicate important information to professionals and consumers. In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this packet features resources to help raise awareness about the importance of screening and the early detection of breast cancer.

About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point during her life. The good news? Many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage your staff and patients to get involved.  Scroll down for breast cancer awareness resources, e-cards, tweets, Web badge, sample newsletter article, and more.
