Education Materials Request
Susan G. Komen® Los Angeles County is happy to provide community members with breast health information. We encourage everyone to visit Shop Komen where you can purchase larger quantities of materials and/or download printable PDFs of certain educational items for free.
Health Fairs | Speaker Requests
Our dynamic Speakers Bureau and Health Fair volunteers are specifically trained to represent Komen Los Angeles County at health fairs and educational programs sponsored by community groups, corporations, and other local organizations. Volunteers provide basic breast health information, discuss the importance of early detection as the key to survival and share breast cancer resources available in the community. In some instances, we may be able to provide a breast cancer survivor who can share her personal story.
We receive many requests for speakers, health fairs, and educational materials, particularly for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October; unfortunately, we cannot fill all of these requests. We ask that you place your request at least one month in advance to increase the chance of volunteer availability for your event. Additionally, Komen LA County will give priority treatment to any event that chooses to incorporate a fundraising or donation element into the program. This helps us make the best use of our limited resources.
Health Fair/Speaker Requests:
- Requests must be received at least four weeks prior to event date.
- A speaker or representative is not guaranteed for your event.
- Due to limited resources, we request a minimum audience of 40 for speaking requests.
- Donations are always appreciated to help offset the costs of the materials and time for these programs.
- It is not our policy to participate in events that charge a fee for non-profit participation.
Please note: until you submit the official request form and receive confirmation from a Komen LA staff member – your event will not be added to our volunteer opportunities calendar. For more info or to check on an existing application, please call us at 310-575-3011.
