First breast cancer summit slated in Cebu

As part of its advocacy to raise cancer awareness and a more holistic understanding of breast cancer, the C-Network, in cooperation with the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology (PSMO), will hold a special one-day breast cancer summit called “HER Knowledge, HER Empowerment” on Saturday, October 1 at the City Sports Club Cebu on Cardinal Rosales Avenue, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City. 

One of the highlights of the breast cancer summit is a lay forum with leading oncologists led by PSMO president Dr. Dennis Tudtud as resource speaker. The discussion will focus on early diagnosis and a better understanding of the role of genetic predisposition to foster a better understanding of the disease. 

The breast cancer summit will also feature lifestyle, nutrition, and exercise programs, as well as free breast cancer screenings to participants that include members of Cebu’s patient support groups and beneficiary members of Cebu communities.

The breast cancer summit is made possible with the support of Roche Philippines, Perpetual Succour Hospital, GMA Kapuso Foundation, GMA Cebu, Epson Philippines Corporation, Philippine Racing Commission, ICanServe Cebu, and the Rotary Club of Cebu Fuente. Pre-registration is now ongoing for those who are interested to join the summit. You can also send your inquiries to breastcancersumit2011@gmail.com.
