for INTO members
Cornmarket has partnered with the INTO and Breast Cancer Ireland to launch a new Breast Health Awareness & Education Programme for all INTO members. The team will travel throughout Ireland to talk to primary school teachers and staff in schools about breast health awareness and to demonstrate the early signs of breast cancer.
From October 2019, we’ll be in touch with INTO members announcing the launch of this new initiative. We’ll also write to principals inviting schools to take part in the programme over the coming weeks and months. We can arrange a date and time that suits your school.
The programme is all about starting a discussion about breast health and encouraging INTO members to self-check regularly to identify what is normal for them, so that if an abnormality occurs it will be detected early.
Using a medically induced mannequin the Breast Cancer Ireland team will show the 8 signs and symptoms of breast cancer as well as how to perform a self-check examination. Presentations can be arranged for 20-25 minutes during lunch time or 45 minutes after school hours (Croke Park hours).
