Did you know we're working to ensure your doctor knows their stuff? Now via online learning!
After hearing frustrations from our community about women's health providers who seemed ill-equipped to have conversations about breast and ovarian cancer prevention and early detection strategies, we embarked on creating a program to fill that gap in 2014. Since then, we have educated over 18,000 providers on how to have these life-saving conversations. To build upon and enhance this work, Bright Pink recently launched a digital e-learning platform that will bridge the knowledge gap and provide a practical, evidence-based approach to identifying patients of all risk levels. Our interactive and innovative approach to continuing medical education will better prepare providers to identify risk, participate in shared decision-making, and create risk management plans to prevent these diseases.
Speaking of e-learning, get the scoop our partner that helped make it happen: Salah Foundation.
The development and launch of the new provider e-learning platform would not have been possible without a generous challenge grant provided by the Salah Foundation–a multi-generational family foundation that supports organizations working to strengthen families and communities and advancing individuals to become productive and responsible citizens. The foundation's support not only provided the resources needed to build a state-of-the-art resource for the provider community, but also effectively accelerated our fundraising efforts. Bright Pink is grateful for the Salah Foundation's partnership!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
1. Our efforts to help more women assess their risk are off to a fantastic start!
87,000+ women have completed Assess Your Risk in 2018 thanks to features of our tool in publications like PureWow, Girlboss, community posts in apps like Glow, and more!
2. You, our community, made our Women's History Month #SelfCareandShare campaign a success!
The campaign focused on highlighting female heroes of the past and present to empower women to be the health heroes of today. We asked women to practice self-care by taking two easy steps 1) prioritize their breast and ovarian health by taking Assess Your Risk, and 2) share Assess Your Risk with 8 women to spread a sentiment of community and shared sisterhood. Campaign messaging and promotions drove over 40,000 women to assess their risk for breast and ovarian cancer in the month of March!
