GBCCF is partnering with the District 2 Public Health Office to educate local women in Hall County about the basic science of breast cancer. Led by trained breast cancer advocates and breast health practitioners, the workshop will be held at The District 2 Public Health Office, 1280 Athens Street, Gainesville, from 1:00-3:00 on Sunday, April 27.
