Pink Ribbon Sunday: How You Can Get Involved!

The FDA Office of Women’s Health (OWH) has launched the Pink Ribbon Sunday Mammography Awareness Program to educate African American and Hispanic women about early detection of breast cancer through mammography. The program strives to reduce breast cancer health disparities by providing community leaders with free resources to develop mammography awareness programs tailored to the needs of your region.

Pink Ribbon Sunday activities have been conducted in urban and rural communities from Oklahoma to Puerto Rico, reaching over 100,000 women. Activities have ranged from mobile mammography events and health fairs to “Pink” luncheons and concerts.
