The Community Development Department will host a Women’s Health Fair on cancer to educate women on the signs and symptoms of the disease as part of its Community Health Action Programme.
The forum entitled: Cancers and Women, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment, will be held on Thursday, July 27, at the Ellerton Community Centre, Ellerton, St. George, starting at 7:00 p.m.
Before the start of the lecture, there will be free breast examinations by personnel from the Barbados Cancer Society at 6:00 p.m. and sampling of healthy food and shakes.
Women and their partners from the district and surrounding areas are asked to make a special effort to attend, as they learn more about taking charge of their health.
