Penn Dental Medicine Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
Philadelphia — Penn Dental Medicine went pink to help build awarness of the importance of early detection in the fight against breast cancer. On Friday, November 2, students and faculty in the teaching clinics and clinicians and staff in the three offices of the Penn Dental Faculty Practices wore pink gowns, gloves, and masks, reminding patients of the vital role of screening in preventive care. Orginally scheduled for October 29 as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the University’s closing due to Hurricane Sandy, extended this awarnesss campaign into this month with the message to “Think Pink, Think Early Detection.”
The pink gowns, masks, and gloves were provided by Benco Dental.
