Classroom chats provide an opportunity to respond to the videos, readings and presentations in the module. This is also a good place for you to share your personal experience as it relates to the course content. You should write at least a paragraph. While we will not be grading on grammar, spelling, APA etc. in this board, you are expected to write well and in your own words. Copy and pasted material will not be accepted. You will be expected to have a total of 2 classroom chat posts during a module. One of them should be initiated by you and one should be a response. We encourage you to question your classmates and push them to think of issues in depth and with complexity. We will be doing this too. With that said, make sure you post in a way that is respectful of others.
Please respond to the peer post
Out of all of the videos and reading, the video where the woman talked about her island and cancer was the video that stuck out to me. A lot of the things she said were shocking to me. As she was saying, back in her island, no one is truly educated about health and taking care of themselves. They think that being skinny means they are unhealthy and their husband does not take care of them. Being fat means they are rich as well as having a lot of children. This woman decided to come to America to learn about medical help to bring back to her country for people who are sick.
As this woman is traveling the United States, she is specifically learning about Breast Cancer. She is learning about warning signs, mammograms, and treatments to be able to bring back her country and help these women. She said most women in her country do not even know how to check themselves for signs of Breast Cancer. This truly makes me think about my own life considering both my mom and my grandma had gone through Breast Cancer treatments. It makes me feel like I am truly blessed to be in a place where they were able to get help and defeat this horrible disease.
