The Day 2 Fahrenheit was dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have regular check-ups to detect the disease in its early stages.
Breast cancer is the second biggest cause death after lungcancer and early detection will have 97 percent of complete recovery. Hence we at Dr. D. Y. Patil University, School of Dentistryhave taken an initiative to create awareness about the life threatening disease. In order to create awareness about breast cancer, posters were put up in around the dental college depicting the importance of early detection of breast cancer. An audio visual clipping showed the self-examination techniques and various other methods for detection of breast cancer was shown to the patients.
The staff and students supported the social cause by wearing pink attires and pinning a pink ribbon, a symbol of breast cancer awareness. So let’s support this social cause and Make a Difference!
