Fillable Women's Health Brochure

Every year, more women die of lung cancer than breast and ovarian cancers combined. Take a proactive step in promoting lung cancer awareness and early detection among women. This brochure is informative and customizable enabling your facility to add contact and website information, thereby making it uniquely yours.

Here's how to make the most of this resource:

Step 1. Customization:

    • Use the fillable text boxes to tailor the brochure with your facility's contact information.

       Step 2.  Printing and Presentation:

    • Print the brochure double-sided for the best presentation and distribution. This ensures your facility's information is visible on both sides.

       Step 3.  Finalizing for Distribution:

    • After printing, fold the brochure once down the middle. This simple step transforms it into its final format, ready for display and distribution.
