Mammography Awareness for All Women

Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the FDA Office of Women’s Health is conducting outreach to educate women about the importance of mammography screening for breast cancer early detection. Our Pink Ribbon Sunday Program helps to empower community leaders and health professionals to conduct mammography outreach activities for the women they serve. The program initially targeted African American and Hispanic churches but has since expanded to local and national organizations serving women from diverse backgrounds.
This year, we are proud to announce that the Pink Ribbon Sunday Program is collaborating with the American Association on Health and Disability and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities to disseminate FDA mammography information to women living with a disability. The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) is a national, cross – disability organization dedicated to improving health and reducing health disparities in children and adults with disabilities. AAHD has outreached to health care providers and mammography facilities about the importance of reducing barriers and making their facilities fully accessible. The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) is a national network of university-based centers and programs in every state and territory working to advance policy and practice for people living with disabilities and their families. AUCD works with diverse professional teams to help people with disabilities live well. 
We encourage health professionals and community leaders to use these resources to educate women about mammography and make mammography screening accessible to women living with disabilities.
