at Booth #401
DALLAS, July 3 /PRNewswire/ --
WHAT: Circle of Promise Ambassadors Ebony Steele and Dr. Rovenia
Brock (Dr. Ro) will bring the fight against breast cancer to
the 2008 Essence Music Festival. Steele and Dr. Ro will share
their view on breast cancer in the African American community
during "Chick Chat" sessions. Platinum recording artist Lyfe
Jennings and R&B newcomer Noel Gourdin will visit the Circle of
Promise booth to greet fans and sign autographs for the first
100 people who visit the booth.
Together, Circle of Promise and Essence will raise awareness
through educational materials, dialogue and advice about how
African Americans can help to combat breast cancer. Nationwide,
African Americans have a lower incidence of breast cancer but
are more likely to die from the disease. According to the
National Cancer Institute, in Louisiana alone, African American
women have breast cancer incidence rates similar to the
national rate but have death rates 17 percent higher; they lead
third in the nation for the highest death rates.
