Barbells For Boobs
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Everyone deserves the right to education and the access to detection.
In our second-to-last installment of the 2019 Expert Insight summer series, Scott interviews Zionna Hanson, founder of Barbells For Boobs, a cancer awareness and cancer detection organization.
Zionna and Barbells For Boobs work to provide education on the significant benefits of fitness and support to access responsible and safe fitness instruction for those directly impacted by breast cancer. Their mission is to reduce breast cancer risk, reduce the prevalence and severity of adverse effects during breast cancer treatment, and reduce post-treatment relative risks of recurrence, breast cancer mortality and all cause mortality.
Tune in to listen as Zionna discusses her origin story, her passion and advocacy, quality organizations in cancer awareness/detection, and three things as recommendations for a better life.
