National Health Observances

This October

South Tabor Family Physicians would like to provide the following resources for two important national health observances. Please take a moment to review this important information.


National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is a time to raise awareness about breast cancer. Get involved by sharing our easy-to-understand MyHealthfinder resources to encourage people to get tested for breast cancer and talk with the doctor about mammograms. And be sure to read up on the Healthy People 2030 Cancer objectives to learn about national progress related to reducing new cases of cancer.


National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October was declared National Domestic Violence Month as a time to spread awareness and highlight efforts to prevent and address domestic violence. Check out and share the Office of Women’s Health’s resources on domestic or intimate partner violence. Stay up to date on progress made to prevent violence by checking out the Healthy People 2030 Violence Prevention objectives. Finally, consider sharing our MyHealthfinder tips for spotting signs of relationship violence.
