Pink ribbonOAK RIDGE, Tenn.—ORAU and teaming partner Ogilvy Public Relations received notice that they had been awarded the Young Women and Breast Cancer Social and Digital Media Education Campaign task order. This $2 million, two-year contract is funded through legislation called the Breast Cancer and Awareness Requires Learning Young Act, or “EARLY Act,” which was enacted in 2009.

ORAU will be conducting formative research; developing and placing continuing medical education activities for health care providers; providing technical assistance and developing training for CDC staff, partner organizations, grantees and the Federal Advisory Committee on Breast Cancer in Young Women.

ORAU provides innovative scientific and technical solutions to advance national priorities in science, education, security and health. Through specialized teams of experts, unique laboratory capabilities and access to a consortium of more than 100 major Ph.D.-granting institutions, ORAU works with federal, state, local and commercial customers to advance national priorities and serve the public interest. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and federal contractor, ORAU manages the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
