IMAN Cosmetics' Breast Cancer Screening & Education Partnership - THANK YOU
In October 2012, IMAN Cosmetics joined force with the InterCultural Council and the Dorothy I. Height Center for Health Equity and Evaluation Research to begin generating awareness about breast cancer screening in underserved communities. This initiative launched a coordinated effort to educate minority women about breast cancer disparities for minority women and the importance of early detection. The project's initial focus began in Houston, the State of Texas, and will expand across the nation in upcoming years. Fundings from IMAN Cosmetics will also assist in planning national network meetings to address issues highlighted in recent reports on the unequal breast cancer mortality rates among American American women. The ICC, IMAN Cosmetics, and the Dorothy I. Height Center for Health Equity and Evaluation Research sincerely thank your support towards this important intiative. read more...
