Home Blog For Wasserman Schultz and Brooks, Reauthorizing Breast Cancer Program Purely Bipartisan

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-FL and Rep. Susan Brooks, R-IN have teamed up to propose the reauthorization of the Breast Cancer Education and Awareness Requires Learning Young (EARLY) Act, which was first passed in 2010. The EARLY Act focuses on education and outreach run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) focusing on the risks young women and women of certain ethnic or racial backgrounds face from breast cancer. 

“Reauthorizing the EARLY Act means that we will continue the vital work of educating young and higher risk women about their breast health and direct their attention to this deadly disease. We must continue supporting initiatives that help identify high-risk women, collect family histories and educate doctors,” said Wasserman Schultz on Friday. 

Wasserman Schultz is a breast cancer survivor herself. She knows the importance of education for younger women and providing tools to ensure a better understanding of breast health.
