For those of you who are not aware of the 15-40 Connection, Nichols College will be hosting many events to raise awareness. The 15-40 Connection is empowering individuals with knowledge that will save and improve lives through early cancer detection. Cancer survival rates in teens and young adults (ages 15 to 40) have barely improved since 1975 in a large part because a delay in diagnosis allows time for cancer to progress to more advanced stages.
Bryant Richard’s Hospitality class will be conducting many events, such as a live survival panel to a dodge ball tournament, as their way for raising awareness about the 15-40 Connection. There will be five student-run events happening on campus. All of these events will be showcasing a different aspect of the 15-40 Connection. Make sure to stop in and participate in one or more!
