CIRCLE OF PROMISE DAY – WALK & PROGRAM

Brought to you by Susan G. Komen San Diego & San Diego Black Health Associates

August 1 is “Circle of Promise Day” in the State of California. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among African American women. It is also the second leading cause of cancer related deaths among African American women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Although incidence rates are lower, African American women suffer significantly higher mortality rates, 41 percent higher than their Caucasian female counterparts. The goal of the Circle of Promise Day is to encourage African American women across the state to get screened and be more proactive about their breast health and engage at least 10 women in their “circle” to do the same.  www.californiacircleofpromise.org #ipromise
