  • October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

    In recognition of Breast Cancer Month, it is important to remind women over the age of 45 to get annual mammograms.   Black women who are found to have breast cancer are at times found to have a more aggressive form of breast cancer that makes screenings even more critical.  For women who have a family history of breast cancer, it is important to get screenings earlier.  Additionally, men can get breast cancer.  For those men with a family history of breast cancer, they should speak with their doctors about risks and the potential need for a screening.

    Getting timely cancer screenings could prove key to early cancer detection.  The sooner a specific cancer is detected, the sooner treatment can begin and recovery completed.  Several Alabama organizations are sponsoring cancer screenings for the community to take advantage of.  Click on Info Center - "Community Highlights" for more information on screenings, including those that may be free.

    Also, under "Photos" on the website, a section "Cancer Awareness" is available to learn more about the risks, symptoms and screening needs for various cancers that impact both women and men.

  • Have You Completed Your Census Form for 2020?

    Its that time again for our nation's census.  The Census is conducted every 10 years across the nation to account for communities - the demographics within each community -  throughout the country in order to assess how federal and state funds are to be allocated to various needs and services across the cities and counties.  It is often said that African American communities have some of the lowest participation in the Census.  It is important that all of us take a few minutes to complete the required census form.  For those who do not submit a form, local Census offices may have an official Census worker visit your home to help you complete your form.  Check out the Info Center, located at the top of the homepage, for more information.  An online link to complete your Census form is included.
