Our annual Teal 5K Run / Fun Walk™ unites friends, families, and the community to raise awareness about early detection and prevention of Ovarian Cancer and Cervical Cancer and its relation to HPV.
Stigma is shame. Shame causes silence. Silence hurts us all. Break The SILENCE!
No female should die from preventable cancer. Early detection matters.
EDUCATION & PREVENTION
Teen Teal Project™ is an educational community workshop for young women and teenage girls in high schools, colleges, and universities. Teen Teal Project™ include a two-part workshop series.
The first workshop focuses on the Epidemic of HPV and its relations to cervical cancer. During the workshop, female students will participate in lectures, activities, and circle discussions. The goal of this workshop is to have the youth themselves modify behaviors that can increase their risk of HPV acquisition and transmission. According to the CDC 4 out 5 females currently have HPV and about 80% of females by age of 50 will have this virus.
The second part of the workshop focuses on PCOS & Ovarian Cancer known as the “Silent Killer”. The workshop focus on early diagnosis of PCOS, the several medical risks associated with PCOS including (insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart disease). This workshop is open to anyone who suffers or thinks they may suffer from PCOS or the symptoms of PCOS and want to learn about PCOS. How to deal with PCOS and its symptoms holistically, those looking for alternatives in their healing journey and support.
