Greetings! October is GBE Black Arts Month 2017 and Black History Month for our brothers and sisters in the United Kingdom. We also bring focused attention to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month across the USA.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2017 is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, your families and individuals to get involved. For more information, call 1-800- CDC-INFO (800-232-4636) or visit www.cdc.gov/cancer/breast. Pass it on.
