We are excited to announce that our recently revised Breast Health Education for Young Women materials, first released in 2008, are now available! The easy-to-use facilitator’s guide and DVD designed for interactive skill-based educational sessions may be useful resources for the health education that your organization may provide to young women. The information in the guide and in the video follows current breast cancer screening and breast self-awareness guidelines.
The video covers the importance of detecting breast cancer early and of being an advocate for one’s own health. It includes facts about breast cancer, a breast self-exam demonstration, and a young survivor’s story. The facilitator’s guide has step-by-step instructions for diverse activities including a video discussion, breast self-exam, role-plays and more. It also has all necessary forms, sample tests and FAQs to make it easy to implement the activities in any setting.
The interactive activities and the target audience make these materials unique. As a St. Louis health educator put it, “the interactive group activities are a valuable resource and an effective teaching tool.”
