GREAT BAY, Sint Maarten (DCOMM) – The next Free Breast Awareness & Screening Event is set for Saturday, November 16.

The aforementioned is a collaboration between the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), the Positive Foundation and the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development, and Labor.

Women will be screened for breast abnormalities, in addition to conducting an overall health assessment, a breast cancer screening questionnaire, and education about recognizing breast abnormalities and cancer risk factors.

The information collected is vital to understand the prevalence of breast abnormalities within the population of St. Maarten.

This initiative began in 2017 as a way to educate the community about breast cancer while empowering women with strategies to proactively monitor their health.
