A unique way of bringing the community together through an intervention designed to address some of the psychosocial barriers faced by women requiring mammograms. The events are held in the community to ensure easy accessibility. The P.I.N.K.I.E. PARTY are equipped with a D.J., our famous pink couch, pink podium, swag bags, healthy food, access to health wellness, and beauty professionals. Women are educated regarding their insurance benefits, learn about the importance of health screenings (an annual well-woman exam that includes a mammogram), and about the health resources available in their community.
Finally, women participate in the development of a family tree whose purpose is to heighten awareness of the family context of breast cancer. Women often clearly understand their familial risk factors for the first time after completing the family tree, which provide a much-needed push to have participants go to get a mammogram.
Our P.I.N.K.I.E. PARTY works perfectly for any occasion any time of year to support anyone recently diagnosed with breast cancer (cancer), to honor a breast cancer (cancer), survivor you love, or to raise money for a special breast cancer organization.
