Widely recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October also calls to mind another important issue: Domestic Violence. This year, on October 16th, the EOC hosted an afternoon of inspiration and education to EOC staff members and clients, to equally shed light on both issues. The keynote speaker, Mrs. Theresa Leak Deaver, CEO/Founder of Lillian and Lillian Foundation, delivered a powerful message about her personal experience with domestic violence. Talented EOC staff members also contributed their gifts to the event: Ms. Danielle Darty and Ms. Charleen Allen shared wonderful words of inspiration through poetry, Ms. Ebony Nesbitt, Head Start Family Service Worker shared inspiration in song and Ms. Augusta Uwechue conducted a clinical presentation on breast cancer prevention self-examination.
