This was much greater than the national death rate of 3.7 per 100,000 females. "These overwhelming statis- tics and the critical need to bet- ter educate wolnen and health professionals about early detec- tion were the premises for the funding request made by the West Virginia Department of ttealth and Human Resources, Bureau of Public Health to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Ms Willis-Miller said. The first year award of $400,000 from CDC will enable the Bureau of Public Health to establish surveillance capacity. develop linkages with organiza- tions invoh, ed with breast and cervical cancer detection, treat- ment and follow-up care and to prepare for expanding access to all levels of service. "We owe special thanks to Senator Robert C. Byrd, for working so hard to secure fund- ing for this program last year in a federal appropriations bill. We are most anxious to begin on this five year initiative to lower the rate of deaths resulting from breast and cervical cancers," Ms Willis-Miller said. The Breast and Cervical Can- cer Program will be administered through the newly established Women's Services Unit in the Bureau of Public health. Proclaiming October Energy Awareness Month." G.,)vernor Gaston Capcrton has called on President George Bush mad Con- gress to develop a nauonal en- ergy policy. Governor Caperton said. "I hope that Energy Awareness Month inspires West Virginians and the naiion to practice energy conservation every day." "Recent events in the Middle East have forced us to realize the economic impact of not having a national energy policy. I call on the President and Congress to develop a national energy policy to reduce our dependency on foreign energy sources and in- crease our use of alternative en- ergy sources, including West Vir- ginia coal," the governor said. "The nation should act quickly on a policy of energy in- dependence, and Energy Aware- ness Month will help us realize the importance of this issue." he added. Sponsored by the state's Fuel and Energy Office, the energy awareness campaign's goal is to make each citizen aware el energy's sources, its wise and ef- ficient use, and its importance to economic prosperity and na- tional security. "A theme of "Plan It for the Planet" focuses on the planned use of energy and resources con- sistent with environmental pres- ervation," according to Governor Caperton. information packages and promotional posters are avail- able from the Fuel and Energy Office by calling toll-free 1-800- 642-9012.
