                     EDUCATION & PREVENTION 

18204180516 c8dba190f8 b.jpg?zoom=1 - Our Core FocusTeen 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.

Part II  

The second part of the workshop focuses on Polycystic ovary syndrome (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).  

 Stigma is shame.  Shame causes silence. Silence hurts us all.

Why a SISTER CIRCLE OF STRENGTH?
  • Circles have been and are still a transformative space of hope and liberation.
  • When we enter the Sister Circle of Strength it allows us to acknowledge others experiences, struggles, and resilience.

The circle discussions serve not as a means of counseling or advising, but as an opportunity for sisters, to break the stigma and silence; share their experiences and survival so others can heal.  Circles are a safe nonjudgmental space for those who believe in transformations as a means to organic and holistic healing.  See the current list of available support group in your area.
