There is a limit of 100 copies of each material, although 100 copies are not guaranteed. Complete the request form and fax or email it to the Komen office.

Request a Speaker or Health Fair Representative
Komen Maryland is dedicated to spreading the message of early detection and we are committed to providing as many resources to our local communities as possible. We do our best to provide free speakers and information at health fairs when requested; however we cannot guarantee these services. We ask that you place your request as far in advance as possible as this increases the chance of volunteer availability for your event. 

Please download our Educational Speaker and Health Fair Request Form and fax or email the completed form to the Komen office. We will be in contact with you regarding your event shortly after receiving this completed form. If we are able to fill your request, additional information regarding your event will be requested.

“We received very positive feedback and were pleased that a Komen volunteer was able to come to speak with us. She was quite knowledgeable about the topic and really engaged the group in a thoughtful discussion on breast care and awareness.” – Past Pink Bag Lunch Host

The State of Breast Cancer Report

Click here for The State of Breast Cancer Report in PDF format.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure, recognized as the global leader in the breast cancer movement, has published the State of Breast Cancer report, a first-ever, reader-friendly snapshot of where the United States and the global community are in the quest to end breast cancer forever.

Written for readers who have an interest in breast cancer but no formal background in the biology of the disease, the State of Breast Cancer provides information on advancements in diagnosis, treatment and research that have made breast cancer a survivable disease for more than 2 million people in the United States. But the news is not all good. The report also explores cultural, social, educational and financial barriers or disparities that prevent many people from getting screened and receiving life-saving breast cancer care.
