September is Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month! Join us as Dr. Erin Stevens of Prevea Health presents “Everything You Need to Know About Down There.”
Gynecologic cancer awareness month is recognized each year in September and is a perfect time to learn more about cancers related to women. Come join Erin Stevens, MD, Gynecologist Oncologist at Prevea Health, as she covers topics from changes that happen after menopause, issues with the sudden need to urinate and what could be causing that itching, burning feeling (hint, it’s probably not a yeast infection!). Plus, she’ll cover what cancer screening tests are recommended, what you can do to decrease your risk of developing gynecologic cancers and whether or not you should still be getting a pelvic exam as you get older.
This event is free and open to the public (members and non-members). Donations are always appreciated!
Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. & team will deliver a challenging, informative, and action-oriented program filled with interactive, reflective, and practical exercises and activities designed specifically for White Women Who Teach Black Boys. The institute/certification experience will be useful for others with interest in and influence with Black boys.
The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys hopes to also teach three main principles: 1) How to overcome unconscious bias and forge authentic connections with your Black male students (Understanding); 2) How to develop learning environments that help Black boys feel a sense of belonging, nurturance, challenge and love at school (Respecting); 3) How to change school culture so that Black boys can show up in the wholeness of themselves (Connecting).
