The OOHD offers a variety of compelling educational resources to promote awareness of the importance of cancer screening, prevention, and treatment. We offer free online tools to help audiences learn about cancer-detection tests and learn how to calculate their personal risks for cancer. The OOHD works to help host community plays and monologues to raise awareness about cancer prevention. We also provide a free online decision aid that assists women in making informed decision about treatment options for breast cancer.
