How it works?

Presentations can take place virtually or in-person depending on your school's preference.

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 take approximately 30 minutes and can be arranged during lunch time or after school hours, and would be ideal for Croke Park hours.
