October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With support from a Federation Jewish Incubator Grant and the Women’s Impact Initiative, Yodeah is helping Jewish women understand their cancer risk. The Miami-based, grassroots, volunteer organization is providing educational outreach programs and on-site, low-cost, saliva-based genetic testing for hereditary cancer mutations in the Jewish community. Jewish Incubator Grants and Women’s Impact Initiative grants are awarded annually by Federation to support inspiring, innovative programs.
