Health Fairs & Speaker Requests
Our dynamic Komen Community Representatives and volunteers are specifically trained to represent Komen North Central Alabama 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.
We get many requests for speakers, health fairs, and educational materials; unfortunately, we cannot fill all of these requests. We ask that you place your request as far in advance as possible – at least 3 weeks in advance if possible – as this increases the chance of volunteer availability for your event.
Health Fair/Speaker Requests:
- Requests should be received at least three weeks prior to event date.
- A speaker or representative is not guaranteed for your event.
- Donations are always appreciated to help offset the costs of the materials 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 our Outreach and Grants Manager – your event will not be added to our volunteer opportunities calendar.
To request a volunteer to attend your upcoming health fair or a Komen Community Representative to speak at your upcoming event or presentation, please complete the request form.
Komen North Central Alabama is happy to provide community members with breast health information. For budgetary reasons, we are only able to provide up to 50 pieces of educational materials to each individual/organization, each year. We welcome any donations to help cover the costs of additional materials. We encourage everyone to visit our Affiliate store on ShopKomen.com, where you can purchase larger quantities or download certain items for free.

Once your request has been approved, you will need to schedule a pick-up date/time to obtain your materials. If your materials have not been picked-up three days after the arranged date, they will be returned to stock.
