Independent investment management firm Sheaff Brock utilizes an approach to money management that challenges traditional presumptions about investing. Beyond its everyday operations, the company provides support to the Susan G. Komen Foundation; best known for its annual "Race for the Cure." The Susan G. Komen chapter in Central Indiana, where Sheaff Brock’s is headquartered, administers the Sisters in Pink program for African-American women.
Sisters in Pink addresses a startling statistic that although African-American women are less likely to develop breast cancer, the risk of death increases by 40 percent for those diagnosed with it. A peer-to-peer education program, Sisters in Pink teaches women about breast health and breast cancer, in addition to providing accessing to life-saving screening and diagnostic services. The program is open to African-American women throughout Marion County.
Members of the Marion County community who feel passionate about breast cancer can join the program’s team in delivering educational sessions. Educators will receive training on breast cancer information and how to host good educational sessions prior to hosting their first session. Furthermore, they will receive monthly stipends depending on the number of completed sessions. Sister in Pink sessions will begin in late summer 2017.
