Bright Pink

In 2016, JALBCA awarded a $30,000 grant to Bright Pink to fund Brighten Up Educational Workshops in New York State. The Brighten Up Educational Workshop is a signature program that educates and empowers young women to be proactive advocates for their health. Facilitated by a certified Bright Pink Ambassador, these 20-minute sessions ground participants in the basics of breast and ovarian health, introduce them to early detection techniques, and equip them with life-saving knowledge. Immediately following the workshop, participants receive access to tools that can help them assess their personal level of cancer risk, and develop an action plan in partnership with a doctor they trust.
