Angelica, I wanted to thank you for the educational program we had at the Locust Valley Library; several people have asked me when you will return with a new talk. Everyone shared how warm you were and how much they learned the night of the workshop. I hope we’ll have another opportunity to partner on another program.
Locust Valley Library
Last year, Sisters provided 70, one hour, culturally competent healthy behavior and breast health workshops (in English and Spanish) with medically-accurate information regarding nutrition, obesity, reducing alcohol, smoking cessation, breast cancer risk reduction and the importance of early detection through mammography screening.
In order to reach medically-underserved communities Sisters collaborates with local libraries, hospitals and community organizations. Over the course of a year, Sisters serves over 5,000 people on Long Island, encouraging them to become actively engaged in healthy behaviors, risk reduction and health screenings.
For over two decades, Sisters has been integral in providing underserved communities with medical information and access to care in order to decrease health disparities. We need your support to continue carrying out our mission. Please share our campaign with family and friends to help us reach our goal.
