Centric Bank has donated $2,000 to Feel Your Boobies Foundation in support of their partnership with Hamilton Health Center to expand their breast health education programs.
Centric Bank supports the mission of Feel Your Boobies, which is to promote proactive breast health to young women through strategic education and outreach programs. The Minority Outreach Program pilots and measures the effectiveness of current breast education materials and delivery methods with the young at-risk women in the African American population. This program is an important expansion of the foundation’s educational programming, as statistically African American women are diagnosed at a younger age and are more likely to die of the disease, once diagnosed, than white women.
“Under the leadership of Leigh Hurst, Feel Your Boobies Foundation has been able to make great strides in educating young women about breast health over the past 10 years. We are proud to be a sponsor of their Minority Outreach Program, which will bring these services to a greater population of young women,” says Patricia A. Husic, President and CEO of Centric Bank.
“Because of support from companies like Centric Bank, in 2019 the Foundation was able to expand our programming to target at-risk African American young women through our Minority Outreach Program. This program allows us to target more young women and, most importantly, a population of young women who are a higher risk of being diagnosed under 40,” says Leigh Hurst, Founder and Executive Director of Feel Your Boobies Foundation.
Centric Bank’s support of this program will provide Feel Your Boobies Foundation with the educational materials for community outreach where there was previously no breast health education materials available.
