WCTE Komen Reach

WCTE KOMEN REACHWCTE-TV launched the WCTE Komen Reach project that will include an on-air, online and print media campaigns alerting women about the importance of a yearly mammogram, early detection and breast health awareness; and increase community knowledge about Komen Upper Cumberland Affiliate grant program.

WCTE is assisting the 2011/2012 Komen Community Grantees by teaching each grant recipient project manager how to use a flip video camcorder and digital/social media to tell their stories through a WCTE created Komen Upper Cumberland Affiliate online social media network. Through this aspect of the project, the “Komen Reach” will combine all elements of the Komen Upper Cumberland Affiliate’s efforts to eradicate breast cancer in the Upper Cumberland; showcasing actions, results, and experiences. During the grant period, WCTE will produce, promote and broadcast an hour long program focusing on the “Komen Reach” Campaign. This program will feature the grant recipients, their individual projects, survivor stories, Komen events, and the work of Susan G. Komen in the Upper Cumberland.
