Education & Outreach | Speaker Requests
We always appreciate the opportunity to share our message and offer presentations tailored to your audience. A Komen Arkansas representative can be requested at health fairs and/or educational programs sponsored by community groups, corporations, and other local organizations. Topics include: breast health, survivorship, disparities in our community, breast cancer in men, young women and breast cancer, and many others. We can also provide basic breast health information, discuss the importance of early detection as the key to survival and share breast cancer resources available in the community.
We get many requests for speakers, health fairs, and educational materials; unfortunately, we cannot fill all of these requests. We ask that you place your request as far in advance as possible as this increases the chance of volunteer availability for your event.
Health Fair/Speaker Requests:
- Requests should be received at least six weeks prior to event date.
- A speaker or representative is not guaranteed for your event.
- Due to limited resources, we request a minimum audience of 20 for speaking requests.
- Donations are always appreciated to help offset the costs of the materials for these programs.
- It is not our policy to participate in events that charge a fee for non-profit participation.
To request a representative to attend your upcoming health fair or a speaker for your upcoming event, please fill out our Outreach Request Form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org. All requests are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
For any questions contact our Mission Director, Karolyn Taylor at 501-202-4394.
Susan G. Komen® Arkansas is happy to provide community members with breast health information. For budgetary reasons, we are only able to provide educational materials for up to 100 people per event. We welcome any donations to help cover the costs of materials. We encourage everyone to visit http://www.ShopKomen.com where you can purchase larger quantities or download educational print materials for free.
Once your request has been approved, you will need to schedule a pick-up date/time to obtain your materials. If your materials have not been picked-up three days after the arranged date, they will be returned to stock.
