Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence. Throughout the month of October, let us raise awareness about domestic violence and join in the effort to end violence against women and children. Louisiana is ranked second among the deadliest states for women victims of domestic violence to live.
New Hope Family join us as we Worship in Pink and Purple during the month of October in observance of Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness month.
On Sunday, October 14, 2018, @ 8:00 a.m. – 9:15.a.m. we will honor survivors of breast cancer and domestic violence at a breakfast in the Education Center. All members are asked to attend as we honor or survivors and give God thanks!
Come and visit the All of Us Journey Wednesday, October 17th, New Hope Baptist Church and the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. HOPE Health Initiative hosts the National Institutes of Health's All of Us Journey – a hands-on exhibit traveling across the United States to raise awareness about precision medicine and the All of Us Research Program’s efforts to speed up breakthroughs in health research.
Precision medicine is health care that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. Precision medicine’s goal is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy. If someone does get sick, precision medicine may help health care teams find the treatment that will work best.
The All of Us Journey has activities to help you learn about the program and how differences between us might lead to different types of treatments.
Drop by and take part in this free 15-minute educational experience at your convenience between 12:00 pm – 6:30 pm, Wednesday, October 17that New Hope Baptist Church. We’d like to welcome you aboard.
