Breastfeeding for Cancer Prevention
In addition to lowering a mother’s risk for type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, breastfeeding can also lower a mother’s risk of breast and ovarian cancers. In honor of World Breastfeeding Month, read this blog from CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control.
Using Inside Knowledge Campaign Materials to Improve Gynecologic Cancer Knowledge in Underserved Womenexternal icon
About 30,000 U.S. women die each year from gynecologic cancer, which disproportionately affects underserved and minority populations. This project aimed at increasing and assessing awareness of risk, symptoms, and recommended screenings and prevention activities in underserved women, through unique collaboration between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Inside Knowledge (IK) campaign, which was designed to educate women about gynecologic cancer, and the CDC’s national network of organizations to reduce cancer-related disparities.
