Educational Programs

To Life! offers educational programs on many topics and in many formats: from full day conferences and half-day forums to evening lectures, small workshops and wellness days.  Each program is designed to bring treatment leaders in touch with survivors, caregivers, family members and friends.  The wide range of topics is each presented from the perspective of cancer survivors and are relevant to those currently in treatment, post-treatment, clinicians, caregivers, family, friends and loved ones.

Breast Health Workshops

You’ve heard it said, “Early detection saves lives”. Then you may ask “How?” or “What is my risk of developing breast cancer?”.  To Life! offers a workshop curriculum that includes valuable information on breast cancer and women’s health – informative and fact-based. Breast Health workshops clearly and persuasively explain how nutrition, biology and lifestyle can affect breast health and disease development. Topics include risk factors for breast cancer, genetics, genetic testing and counseling, breast self-exam, screening, diet and exercise.

Breast Health Outreach

An essential element of good breast health includes vigilance; adherence to a screening regimen, regular ob/gyn check-ups and personal breast self-exam. To Life! staff and trained volunteers provide one on one and small group education.
