Georgia Southern University will host Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s community education and outreach tour, Komen on the Go, on Thursday, Sept. 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the rotunda of the Russell Union Building.
The tour is a nationwide initiative delivering life-saving breast health information to all generations of women. It is open to both the university and Statesboro communities.
The pink trailer that carries Komen On the Go converts into an interactive learning center.
This fun, hands-on experience features computer kiosks, breast cancer educational materials, breast self-examination (BSE) guides, information on how to volunteer locally, registration cards for the Komen Race for the Cure, tips on supporting loved ones facing breast cancer and an eight-foot "graffiti wall" for students to share a memory or pledge their personal support in the cause to end breast cancer.
Local breast cancer survivors and health care professionals will be on hand to share their experiences and knowledge.
The tour stop at Georgia Southern University is one of more than 150 stops for Komen On the Go and one of the few stops in Georgia.
