Education & Awareness

Cornmarket and Breast Cancer Ireland have come together to promote breast health education to transition year students, teachers nationwide, corporates and clubs.

 The outreach programme aims to educate women of all ages about the disease so they’ll know what is normal for them. Should an abnormality occur, it will be identified early and the treatment outcome a lot more positive.

 How does it work? The programme comprises of a visit from a Breast Cancer Ireland qualified outreach coordinator to both teachers and/or TY Students and corporate companies.

To book a presentation for your school or company please contact smcgregor@bciresearch.ie
