The Bulletin (Inglewood Tribune) featured L.A. Care's Inglewood Family Resource Center (FRC) in "L.A. Care Celebrates Women's Health Week with Life-Saving Workshops". The article talked about the center's efforts to raise awareness about women's health by offering wellness workshops on breast, cervical and colorectal cancers during National Women's Health Week, which took place May 13 to 19.
The Bulletin reported that one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, with more than 266,000 cases expected to be diagnosed this year. It's estimated that more than 13,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer this year, but nearly a third will die from the disease. Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death for women and men.
