October is Breast Cancer Awareness and Education Month. It is also the month for Health Literacy. However, we at OneWorld believe that every day is the right day for Health Literacy and Breast Cancer Education. OneWorld has a more extensive posting for all women on our regular web blog page at: http://oneworldpi.org/blog/archives/1276
By October 21, 2012 we hope to have a new 1-hour education program on Breast Cancer diagnosis and Treatment . We will be focusing on Diagnosing Breast Cancer in Dense Breast Tissue. We have a 5 mins 6 secs clip from that video program linked below. You can also visit this link to see a video clip titled: Understanding the Staging of Breast Cancer: http://youtu.be/dpbw1qCsJrg
A clip from OneWorld’s Oct. 2012 Breast Ca community education program. Yale Breast Cancer experts address the importance of women working with their doctors to determine when they should have mammograms and not be confused by recent US Preventive Services Task Force Guidelines.
African American women often get Breast Cancer at an earlier age than Caucasian women. http://youtu.be/OeKBE07FX0g

There is a video for every woman in every age and ethnic group to get informed about the importance of regular monthly self-examination, making treatment decisions and living life after cancer.
