The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) is proud to share that the ‘Bring Your Brave’ campaign has been awarded a gold medal in the 3rd Annual Anthem Awards. Gold medal winners in the ‘Health, Non-Profit Community Engagement, Public Service’ category are projects, initiatives, or campaigns that demonstrate best-in-class efforts by federal, state, or local government or council to engage a community of people and provoke action related to health.
NACDD partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Redglass Pictures to create the Bring Your Brave campaign, which provides information about breast cancer to women younger than age 45 by sharing real stories about young women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the U.S., and nine percent of all cases are reported in this age group.
This National Cancer Prevention Month, NACDD invites our Members to prioritize their own health and get screened for cancer.
Risk for breast cancer among young women varies based on factors such as family and personal history of cancer. The more patients know about their family’s history of cancer, the better they can understand and address their risk. Finding ways to make these conversations easier and more productive can improve patient health outcomes.
This campaign is the result of successful collaboration between NACDD staff and consultants, our partners in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control at the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at CDC, and Redglass Pictures. NACDD is grateful for their partnership!
