Normally when the people hear the word "cancer", it is something that we do not like to talk about as it affects the lives of so many people, however, it is so important that we do talk and raise awareness. If we do not talk, how are we going to fight cancer?
To spread the cancer awareness among the staff in HCT, the college RHS committee organized a Cancer Awareness Seminar last 31st January 2019 at the New Multipurpose Hall in the Student Learning Center from 10.00 am to 12:00 noon. Dr. Rajyashree Narayanankutty, a specialist surgeon, Barakath Al Noor Clinic in Al-Khuwair conducted the seminar.
Dr. Rajyashree focused her talk on five cancer types that can be screened: lung, breast, prostate, colorectal, skin and cervical. Dr. Rajyashree further briefly discussed cancer risk factors, signs and symptoms and the importance of attending screening tests in detecting cancer.
The RHS committee, chaired by Mr. Mazin Al Saadi, Assistant Dean for Administration and Finance, organized this highly informative and insightful seminar.
