Amanda Radcliffe Talk to Highlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Zeta Tau Alpha sponsors talk about breast cancer prevention and detection

Bethlehem, Pa., October 18, 2010—Alumna Amanda Radcliffe will return to Moravian College to raise awareness about breast cancer prevention and detection with a talk on Monday, October 25 at 7 p.m. in Prosser Auditorium. Radcliffe is a board member of Breastcancer.org. The talk is sponsored by the sorority Zeta Tau Alpha in recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The public is welcome and admissions is free of charge.

Radcliffe is the Director of the Board and Secretary of Vertex Inc., a corporate tax solution, software, consulting organization. She received her B.A. degree in history and political science from Moravian. Her mother was a founding Board Member of Breastcancer.org and in her passing, Amanda joined the organization in 2004. She has since helped the organization receive national recognition.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is held in October and has been promoting breast cancer awareness, sharing information on the disease, and providing greater access to screening services for 26 years now. It is an organization of partnerships between national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together. The organization recognizes that great strides have been accomplished in awareness and treatment, but they remain dedicated to educating and empowering women when it comes to their health. Even though October is recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NBCAM is a year-round resource for patients, survivors, caregivers, and the general public. For more information, please visit www.NBCAM.org.

Moravian College encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. Anyone who anticipates needing any type of accommodation or who has questions about the physical access provided should contact Kathi Roman at Katro@moravian.edu or 610 625-7880.
