Let's Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures
Encouraging a discussion between health professionals and their patients
We continue to spread the word about the importance of understanding the risks of toxic exposures. We are pleased to announce that our patient brochure is now available in Spanish and Chinese, in addition to English, and will be available in Korean in February. We will continue to have our materials translated into more languages in order to help reach as many members of communities across Massachusetts as possible.
The Let's Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures tour is an exhibition and lecture series throughout Massachusetts featuring the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition's Let's Talk Prevention materials. The tour can be tailored to the specific needs of a community and can include: community outreach table in a lobby/oncology office, exhibition at a health and wellness fair, speaking engagements and lectures, special events, private events, and hospital staff meetings. We are visiting hospitals, health centers, community centers, libraries, high schools, colleges, and private groups to share the materials and encourage discussions about the reduction of toxic exposures in our communities.
