National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is the month designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month – want to learn more? Your NVC Library has lots of great resources that cover all aspects of breast cancer from scholarly articles to autobiographical accounts of dealing with breast cancer. Here are just a few of them:

Our database Health and Wellness Resource Center has a great article on breast cancer that gives you an overview of symptoms, diagnosis and treatements.

Our database Natural and Alternative Treatments has an extensive cancer prevention article, listing all the different foods and supplements shown to have some effect on preventing breast cancer as well as many other types of cancers.

Visit our database MEDLINE for in-depth, scholarly articles on breast cancer .

And of course we have many many books on breast cancer here in the library for you to check out, such as:
