Al Qasba, Sharjah's premier tourist, leisure and family hotspot, in collaboration with the Body and Soul Health Club and Thumbay Hospital, is organising weekend activities in October to mark the annual International Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.
From October 22 to 24, Al Qasba's visitors will have the opportunity to receive free medical advice and consultations as well as free sugar and blood pressure checkups provided at Block A near Al Qasba's Eye of the Emirates from 6 to 8.30pm.
The awareness programme features a range of educational lectures, free medical consultations and free sugar and blood pressure checkups provided by medical staff consisting of a general practitioner, surgeon and nurses from Thumbay Hospital.
Khulood Al Junaibi, Al Qasba Deputy Manager, said: "Besides awareness-raising and health education, we hope, through this campaign, to succeed in encouraging women to undergo regular medical screenings and perform self-examinations for early detection, as scientific studies and medical research show that early detection of breast cancer can lead to a full recovery." - Wam
