The Johns Hopkins Breast Center and alpha Kappa Delta Phi sorority are teaming up to present Breastival, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event will promote breast health among young women, provide tips for breast cancer prevention and information on innovations in breast reconstruction techniques, all presented by Johns Hopkins specialists. Visitors will engage in hands-on activities and have their questions answered by experts in the field. There will be free food and games, as well as raffles with prizes. The most recent Breastival in April 2001 attracted more than 1,000 people. An Asian-American sorority, alpha Kappa Delta Phi promotes scholarship, leadership and cultural awareness in the university and the community. The Johns Hopkins Breast Center is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary breast care program, offering screening, diagnosis, treatment and counseling. The event is free and open to the public.
