Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is pleased to introduce a new environmental health education program for high school students Let’s Talk Prevention: Actions You Can Take. This new program is designed as supplemental, stand-alone classroom modules to enhance your current science, health, and environmental studies curriculums by providing real world application of scientific content knowledge.
This new education program is an extension of MBCC’s award-winning Let’s Talk Prevention: Reducing Toxic Exposures community education program and tour, which is designed to inform the community about the environmental risks for breast cancer and other diseases. The Let’s Talk Prevention tour has now been hosted in over 100 locations across Massachusetts. MBCC has now partnered with scientists and educators to adapt and expand this environmental health initiative to foster a hands-on, inquiry-based high school curriculum enrichment tool. Through the Let’s Talk Prevention: Actions You Can Take classroom modules, MBCC seeks to bring this important health information to high school students across the Commonwealth.
The first two modules are now available, and more are in development:
