Breast Health ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Advocates

The Advocate Program provides community-based education, support and advocacy for breast health in northwest Georgia and northeast Alabama. 

Our volunteers are trained to speak knowledgeably about t​he Atrium Health Floyd Medical Center The Breast Center resources ​and breast health, and to serve as educators for the community.

Advocate Outreach​

Advocates can:

  • Speak with local civic groups, garden clubs, church groups and other organizations on the importance of breast health and the resources available at The Breast Center
  • Reach out to women on a one-on-one basis providing breast health education and support, while also emphasizing the need for monthly self-breast exams, annual mammograms and other screenings, if appropriate
  • Represent the center at local events, such as health fairs or festivals, by providing demonstrations of self-breast exams and answering questions about mammograms, clinical breast ​exams and genetic testing

Advocates are:

  • Chosen because they have been affected by breast cancer, whether personally or through a family member or friend
  • Receive initial orientation training, along with quarterly continuing education
  • Committed to helping improve the health of women in the northwest Georgia and northeast Alabama area


To talk with an advocate one-on-one or to have an advocate speak at your group meeting, contact Atrium Health Floyd Medical Center The Breast Center at 706-509-6840.
