Getting the word out
Every year during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Dallas ISD highlights the importance of screening mammograms and other prevention measures as part of its overall wellness initiatives. This year, in honor of the national theme “Together we Rise” we are asking breast cancer survivors and those who have shared the journey with them to share their stories by emailing email@example.com.
Dallas ISD in partnership with UT Southwestern is also offering the opportunity for staff to get screening mammograms in the health center’s mobile units on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Skyline High School. Screenings will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and require appointments. Annual screenings are recommended for women beginning at age 40.
