Jai Hind College - Alumni Association (Invitation to interactive session on Cancer Awareness)

Dear Alumnus,

I take this opportunity to invite you to be a part of a very innovative interactive session on Cancer awareness being organised by the Indian Cancer Society at Jai Hind College on Tues Jan 16th 2018 at 11.30am in our College Auditorium.

The context to this entire exercise is that with the increased incidence in the onset of cancer, Indian Cancer Society believes that awareness would help the public understand the real situation, eliminate any myths, and call to their attention several proactive steps they can take to be in control of the situation if the disease should strike them. Based on these and on further interaction with Times of India, the ICS have now a collaborated to enhance the focus on cancer awareness through a series of events between January leading up to 4th February -World Cancer Day.

The program will include an oncologist giving a talk to the students on -basics of cancer.
-incidence and trends in Mumbai and the country.
-leading cancers in men and women.
-regular screening being the key to early detection.
-risk factors esp tobacco and tobacco products.
-importance of a healthy lifestyle.
-importance of insurance.

Additionally a patient/survivor & the treating doctor , will present a real experience and steps taken on handling the situation for self and the learnings applied for family.
This would be followed by a Q&A.

Hope you will join us in this social cause & intimate us the details of the participating team.

Warm regards.
