If you want to learn as much as you can about how to prevent or limit the onset of breast cancer in your life or the life of someone you love, then join a virtual webinar sponsored by Alabama State University's Health Services and the Montgomery Chapter of the Links, Incorporated on Oct. 14, at 6 p.m. The webinar brings together a cadre of medical experts in a program titled "Breast Cancer in African-American Women; Breast Health Matters!" 

The senior director of ASU's Health Services says that anyone, regardless of gender, is welcomed to the free event by merely registering, via this link to participate: 

Dr. Joyce Loyd-Davis manages healthcare on the ASU campus, and she is committed to all forms of disease prevention; however, she says that helping women avoid or limit the consequences of breast cancer gives her a great deal of satisfaction. 


"Breast cancer is one of the most feared cancers among women; yet, it is also one of the most preventable if each person takes the time to follow the easy to accomplish and pain-free protocols that exist today and repeats them frequently so as to detect breast cancer early," Loyd-Davis said. 

With October being Breast Cancer Prevention Month, Loyd-Davis and the members of Montgomery's Chapter of the Links, Inc. believes that there is no better time to start than by participating in the 1 to 2-hour virtual webinar co-sponsored by ASU, which may be watched in the comfort and privacy of one's home. 

Medical professionals all agree that prevention and early detection is the key to beating this cancer, and that is why it is important to participate in a healthy discussion such as the one provided by this forum. 

"I urge everyone to be proactive in their healthcare and join us on this webinar. To be educated is to be healthy," ASU's Loyd-Davis added.
