BLACKS & amp; CANCER What can be done



Published: Sat, February 8, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.


Some cancer-prevention programs developed primarily for the black community include:
Let's Talk About It: A community-based prostate-cancer awareness program for black men to help them understand their increased risk and the importance of early detection. The program is a collaborative effort of the American Cancer Society and 100 Black Men of America.
Body and Soul: A faith-based outreach program for blacks that helps church members adopt healthier lifestyles and make healthier nutrition choices.
Tell a Friend: A community outreach program in which volunteers encourage female friends and family members 40 and older to obtain a mammogram and to help them understand the importance of early detection in saving lives from breast cancer.
Meeting Well: A tool to help staffers and volunteers plan meals for meetings and events so participants can make healthy food choices.
