Breast Cancer awareness month
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, OOB hosted an interactive educational talk for the female staff at school on the 28 October 2021 from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The seminar presented by medical oncologist Dr. Julide Sagiroglu and the team of NMC Royal Hospital, provided a better understanding of cancer-related conditions and how they can be managed. Topics included - causes of breast cancer, prevention, diagnosis/ treatment options, latest studies and ways to support family/friends who are battling cancer.
The seminar proceeded with a question and answer session, which eliminated the myths about breast cancer and highlighted the facts. Teachers were also taught methods of self-examination and identification of symptoms that help in early detection.
The enlightening session ended with a vote of thanks by the school doctor, Ms. Summiya Qazi followed by general checkup and screening for the entire female staff.
