MCHC provides Breast Health Education Workshops.
What happens at the workshops?
Workshops cover the following:
- what breast awareness is and why it is important
- identifying what is normal
- knowing what changes to look and feel for
- known risk factors
The aim of the workshops are to allow a interactive and relaxed discussion on breast health awareness. Currently, we hold workshops in a multiple languages including: English, Urdu, Hindi, Arabic, Rohyngga, Karen, Persian, and Turkish.
One of our previous participants explains how the workshop helped her:
“I learned so much from the workshop, plus I received a clinical breast exam. The doctor told me to follow up with a mammogram, which I wouldn’t have done otherwise. Nothing was seen in the mammogram, but I feel better knowing now what is normal for me. Thanks to the doctor and staff that helped me.”
