The Chattanooga Affiliate has a remarkable group of trained volunteers, many of whom have been personally touched by breast cancer, who conduct educational presentations on breast health and breast cancer for organizations, businesses, schools, and community groups free of charge. Presentations can be scheduled for small to large groups for people of all ages.  Speakers will go to your organization or group’s location and presentation hours are flexible from anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour.

Speakers also come with educational materials. Video and PowerPoint presentations are available. We are eager to share our life-saving information and our personal stories with you. To inquire about scheduling a speaker for your next event, please email info@komenchattanooga.org. Click here to download a Revised Speaker Request Form

 Health Fairs Health fairs are an important venue for the Chattanooga Affiliate of Susan G. Komen® to reach new people and distribute vital life-saving breast health information.

The Affiliate hosts booths at several health fairs held in and around the Chattanooga area. Our volunteers are eager to set up a Komen booth at health fairs and are trained to answer any questions regarding breast health and breast cancer information. We hand out educational materials about breast health and breast-self checks, as well as provide information about local breast health programs and services at our booths. If you know about an upcoming health fair where you would like us to add a Komen booth, please email us at info@komenchattanooga.org.
