Looking around, there’s a lot of orange and black on display for Halloween, but another color is also making an appearance – pink! Yes, it’s that time of year again; October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Not only can you as a nurse practitioner support the cause by attending an community event like a 5K for the cure, you can raise awareness in your practice.
A number of companies acknowledge Breast Cancer Awareness Month with pink products designed to contribute financially to the cure with a portion of profits donated to various breast cancer support organizations and research. If you’re an NP, check out these fun, colorful stethoscopes on the market. The hue will prove fun and variety long after the month is over.
