On Sunday March 9th Maisie Pinder, Community Outreach Coordinator for the One Eleuthera Foundation, presented on breast cancer to the Haitian congregation at the Church of the Nazarene in Palmetto Point. The presentation included a PowerPoint display inclusive of pictures which helped to make the information more understandable, since most of the members spoke very little to no English. There was also an interpreter present to translate. The presentation yielded a healthy discussion as there were many questions from the intrigued audience. There were also men present who were equally interested in the information presented. Everyone was encouraged to pay very close attention to any changes in their bodies and have regular screenings. A total of 38 participated in the education session.
Note: One Eleuthera COC position is funded by a grant from Susan G. Komen.
