October represents various themes of fall. Between the changing leaves, pumpkin spiced food and cool weather; October also turns a shade of pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
To help raise students, faculty and staff knowledge of this wide-spread epidemic, Southern Utah University's Center for Women and Families will host a booth on Monday, October 7 in the Sharwan Smith Student Center where students studying nursing will pass out pamphlets on how to conduct self exams and check-ups for breast cancer.
The student nurses will also be on hand from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on that day to answer any questions and provide more information about breast cancer. With 1 in 8 women developing breast cancer in their lifetime, come to booth to learn more about how you can prevent it.
This is in partnership with the Michael O. Leavitt Center for Politics & Public Service and Department of Nursing.
