On October 31, 2009, Theta Epsilon Omega Chapter, in collaboration with the Breast Cancer Network of Strength hosted, “A Day For You” Breast Health Awareness Fair.  Theta Epsilon Omega welcomed this collaboration and is committed to educating the community in an effort to eradicate health care disparities.  During this breast health awareness fair, participants learned earlier detection methods for breast cancer and how to practice breast self-examinations.  Participants also received referrals for a free mammogram at local mammography facilities.  The National Kidney Foundation and the American Heart Association also provided screening services.  Those attending the event had the opportunity to meet with a variety of vendors, including the Yale New Haven Hospital Breast and Cervical Cancer Program and the Breast Cancer Network of Strength.  An exercise demonstration presented by Theta Epsilon Omega member Cathy Patton, a Certified Personal Trainer, educated participants on ways to incorporate exercise routines into their daily schedules.  Dr. Andrea Silber, a leading oncologist in the New Haven area and an advocate of cancer awareness in under-served communities, addressed a variety of topics concerning breast health.  A panel discussion was also presented by members of local area cancer support groups.  The event was concluded with a group meditation demonstration by Dr. Jeanne Fuqua a naturopathic doctor.  The “A Day For You” event was a huge success and provided all who attended with information and tips to promote a healthier lifestyle.
