Join us to celebrate breast cancer awareness month and the northern Nevada healthcare partnership dedicated to early detection of breast cancer for all women!
Officials with the Northern Nevada Breast Cancer Collaborative (NNBCC) are proud to announce the “Paint Nevada Pink” event which will celebrate an unprecedented collaboration in our region regarding awareness and unified recommendations for breast cancer screening.
In a bold and exciting move, health care providers, radiologists, breast surgeons and advocates have worked together to implement unified breast cancer screening recommendations and strategies in an effort to improve our region’s breast cancer screening rates, decrease late-stage breast cancer diagnoses and to improve time from diagnosis to treatment for women.
To raise awareness for these efforts, and to celebrate this incredible milestone, the Reno Arch will go pink at this incredible event and through the month of October 2019. The event itself will feature a short presentation by dignitaries and breast cancer survivors, UNR cheerleaders and music, Nevada Health Centers Mammovan, food trucks, and more! All are encouraged to wear pink. This event is sponsored by Access to Healthcare, Cancer Care Specialists, Carson Tahoe Hospital, City of Reno, Each One Tell One, Nevada Cancer Coalition, Nevada Health Centers Mammovan, Northern Nevada Medical Center, Reno Diagnostic Centers, Renown Health, Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center, Susan G. Komen and Western Surgical Group.
