The Maurer Foundation’s Breast Health Educator Training and Certification Program reached its newest milestone with the training of its first international participant. Kathryn Kemp-Griffin founded Pink Bra Bazaar, a breast health charitable organization in France, which also supports women with breast cancer. Kate spent two days with our Program Manager, further developing her message of prevention and risk reduction, and honing her skills in breast self-examination through the MammaCare method.
France is just beginning to embrace the idea of prevention, which is sorely needed in a country with breast cancer rates higher than most of the world. Kate will incorporate what she has learned through training with the Maurer Foundation staff into her creative workshops using the bra as a symbol of femininity, strength and breast health awareness.
