News Release

Susan G. Komen For the Cure’s® national outreach tour plans visit to the University of Texas at Tyler campus this week

The Susan G. Komen On the Go™ mobile will visit the University of Texas at Tyler on Wednesday, October 15. The bright, pink vehicle converts into an interactive learning center. The computer kiosks give information on the breast cancer movement, how to do a breast self-exam, inspirational videos and a graffiti wall to share memories or pledge support for the cause.

Currently in its fifth cross-country tour, Komen On the Go™ will be on exhibit more than 150 days in more than 50 communities this year. Komen is hoping to teach Americans everywhere to take charge of their breast health and to share information with friends about the breast cancer movement.

UT Tyler students and the public are invited to visit the mobile from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on October 15 in parking lot three, located in front of the University Center on the UT Tyler campus. Visitors can take the main entrance off of Old Omen Road and follow the signs to lot three.
