Pink and Teal Seminars Inspire and Motivate
Arlene Matlick (right) and Andrea Herzberg motivate the members of the Staten Island Women's Bar Association.
When the Staten Island Women's Bar Association hosted a SHARE Pink and Teal Seminar in June, members who said they had been ignoring their health had their eyes opened. One woman who had cancelled her gyn appointment rescheduled after listening to the seminar. They were reminded of how important it is for women to take care of their health. 

Pink and Teal Seminars on breast and ovarian cancer awareness are informative, empowering, inspirational, and motivational. And they're free of charge. Learn how to bring a Pink and Teal Seminar to your workplace. Contact Arlene Matlick.
