Indigenous Pink Day
Article Submitted by: Marlene Glaesmann, RN, MPA Rural Health Program Manager

In support of the national breast cancer awareness campaign for American Indian/Alaska Natives, Sault Tribal Health Centers located across the Eastern Upper Peninsula participated in the  Indigenous Pink Day initiative on October 21st.  The goal of Indigenous Pink Day events held across the nation were  to educate all Native American people on the importance of early detection and to remind both men and women to keep up to date on their cancer screenings.  Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death and the most common cancer found in American Indian/Alaska Native women.  Along with staff wearing pink, visitors to the Tribal Health Center sites received breast cancer prevention information and lots of  pink gifts from educational booths.  This event was a huge success in raising the awareness of the importance of breast cancer education, prevention and screenings for Native American men and women across the Tribe s service area.  Many thanks are given to staff across the Health Division that coordinated and participated in the event.  Sault Tribal Health Centers will participate in this National breast cancer awareness campaign in October of each year.
