Community Spotlight: Mammogram screenings

Dear Members,

Welcome to our community spotlight feature*. As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Toluna is very active in supporting the cause. A few weeks ago, we chose cmin2000’s topic discussing the loss of a family member to the disease. Breast cancer can’t always be avoided, but we can help prevent it through early detection. This week’s community spotlight winner, lilshep, wants to know if you’ve taken these steps in her poll: Did anyone get their mammogram?

As you can see from the results, only 25% of participants said yes. You can weigh-in on her poll here.
