The Get In Touch Girls’ Program & Daisy Wheel was developed specifically for girls in grades 5-12 to educate them on the importance of, and how to do a breast self exam – for life.
In collaboration with a medical consulting board that includes a school nurse, a pediatrician, an oncologist, a breast surgeon and a radiologist, GIT has developed the Daisy Wheel. This highly innovative tool will be introduced by health educators to girls beginning in 5th grade, when introducing topics of hygiene and the girls’ changing bodies, and will be taught annually through 12th grade. These “Eight Tips” for “Eight-Straight” years of the Girls’ Program will give the girls the foundation they need to practice BSE – for life.
The Get In Touch Foundation Founder and Executive Director Mary Ann Wasil Nilan has won the 2010 Oprah Magazine CoverGirl Giving Beautiful Back Award. Mary Ann’s inspirational story of how she gives beautiful back to the community was featured in the February 2010 issue of O.
