Breast Cancer Awareness Month 

A comprehensive study – the California Teachers Study – revealed that teachers have a higher-than-expected rate of breast cancer. Outreach during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month may help dispel some of the fears associated with the disease. From special merchandise to pink lapel pins, the campaign to raise awareness has grown dramatically since it was first established in 1985. While we can’t prevent cancer, we can take steps to lower the risk, including regular self-breast exams, mammograms for women starting at age 40 to 50 (depending on risk, such as family history), avoiding smoking, eating a healthy diet, and exercising.
