Burgan Bank concludes breast cancer awareness campaign
Burgan Bank recently held its breast cancer awareness campaign in collaboration with Al-Seef Hospital, which was curated specifically for employees. Dr Noha Al-Saleh, Consultant for General Surgery and Surgical Oncology from Al-Seef Hospital presented methods to help raise consciousness of breast cancer between the employees.
She spoke about how to help prevent the disease, what the common risk factors are, how to deal with them, and different screening methods that everyone should know. Breast Cancer is a wide spread disease that is considered to have a high death rate amongst women worldwide and especially in Kuwait. However, it can be treated and cured if detected at an early stage. The breast cancer early detection awareness initiative is part of the continued development of Burgan Bank’s successful contributions to raise awareness about the disease, and to encourage women to conduct preventive check-ups.
