According to PBH, the event will be part of the “Transcending Limits Cancer Screening Initiative” and will offer education and resources about screenings for breast/chest cancer, cervical cancer, and colorectal cancer, alongside recommendations about HPV vaccinations.
Other participating organizations, noted PBH, include:
