On the occasion of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Al Khalij Commercial Bank (al khaliji) organised a seminar for its employees in partnership with the National Breast and Bowel Cancer Screening Programme ‘Screen for Life’.
There was a lecture about breast cancer symptoms, stages and prevention methods, mammogram - the early detection test every woman between 45-69 should do once every three years and the suites where women can get screened.
“Given that breast cancer takes away so many lives around the world every day, al khaliji is deeply committed to the well-being of its employees,” said Personal Banking head Rana al-Assad.
“Such seminars are informative and educational, and will help people to watch out for developing symptoms and learn how to treat these diseases, and perhaps to take care of their bodies and lifestyles better.
“The Breast Cancer Awareness session, demonstrates the bank’s support to the campaign to create awareness in general public and reach out to the youth of Qatar. In tackling cancer, it is often crucial to respond powerfully and swiftly through a grassroots campaign. I am confident that through events like these we are not only spreading awareness but also sending out a strong message of hope.”
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed globally in October, as an annual campaign to help those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.
