How Bright Pink is making a difference

Brighten Up Educational Workshops

The Brighten Up® Educational Workshop educates and inspires young women to be proactive advocates for their health. Facilitated by one of the certified Bright Pink Education Ambassadors around the country, these 20-minute presentations, delivered at workplaces, faith-based institutions, community centers and other gathering places, ground participants in the basics of breast and ovarian health, introduce them to the idea of different lifetime risk levels, provide early detection and prevention strategies, and equip them with life-saving knowledge that will inspire them to action.

Women’s Health Provider Education Initiative

To bridge gaps in knowledge and formalize a framework for risk stratification and management in young women, a multidisciplinary panel of surgeons, oncologists, OB/GYNs and genetic counselors came together to develop a lecture and case-based learning workshop designed for residents in OB/GYN and other women’s healthcare programs. The Program has been delivered at Harvard Medical School, Washington University Medical School, Tufts University School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and many other medical institutions around the US, reaching. Bright Pink aims to deliver this talk at all OB/GYN programs in the US by 2019.

PinkPal® One-on-One Peer Support

Bright Pink’s PinkPal® matches women who have a strong family history of breast and ovarian cancer or a genetic predisposition for these cancers with another woman who has had similar experiences. With our program, high-risk women can take advantage of the opportunity for personalized, individual mentoring support.

Outreach Groups

Bright Pink’s Outreach Groups program provides group support forums for high-risk women around the country. These monthly support groups provide women at an increased or high risk for breast or ovarian cancer, due to a family history or genetic predisposition, with invaluable face-to-face connections with other women living with and through similar challenges and experiences.
