TWU announces the Pioneer Breast Health and Community Outreach Program

of Denton County


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University will host a reception Tuesday, June 10 to introduce the Pioneer Breast Health and Community Outreach Program of Denton County.  The “Think Pink!” reception is open to the public and will take place at noon in room 207 of the TWU Student Union, located on the southwest corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive.

Details of the program and opportunities for involvement will be discussed. Food and door prizes also will be provided.  For more information, email healtheducation@twu.edu.

The TWU program was awarded $13,500 by the North Texas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which awarded a total of $1 million in grants this year to 13 organizations that provide breast cancer services to residents in Denton, Collin and Grayson counties.

TWU is the first university to receive funding from the North Texas Affiliate.

Dr. Jody Oomen-Early, TWU assistant professor of health studies, and Ms. Priyanka Lalwani, TWU Health Education coordinator, serve as the grant’s principal investigators and program directors. 

“The mission of the program is to save lives by providing culturally competent breast health education and community outreach throughout Denton County, especially to those who are uninsured or are not able to pay for care,” Dr. Oomen-Early said.

The program  will utilize multiple strategies to reach at least 1,000 Denton County women, including breast health education in churches, beauty salons, medical clinics, and local businesses; mobile mammography, and a survivor support network.  To learn more about the program, visit http://www.pioneerbreasthealth.com.
