Following the successful hosting of its first campaign of the month, the Daffodil campaign hosted its second and final full day Cancer Education and Awareness workshop.
The workshop was held at the same venue, the Royal Papua Yacht Club, Port Moresby.
In the first workshop, more than 200 participants gathered including students from the Institute of Business Studies University (IBS).
This time in its second and final workshop, more than 250 participated in the workshop. Most of them were from the office and community groups around Port Moresby.
The workshop was conducted by PNG Cancer Foundation’s Health Educator, Dr. Sonia Dadae.
Dr. Dadae highlighted the importance of prevention and detection as the key way to reducing the risk of developing cancer. She urged participants to practice healthy lifestyle choices to avoid getting cancer and to spread the information to their families and loved ones.
PNGCF CEO, Dadi Toka, at the opening of the workshop, thanked the gathered participants, and urged them to practice what they learn from the workshop.
He also thanked the program sponsor JM Ocean Avenue, venue sponsor, Royal Papua Yacht Club, and supporters, Moore Printing and DHL for their support towards making the workshop successful.
Overall, a total of over 500 participants participated in the Daffodil Campaign cancer education and awareness workshops 1 & 2.
The next cancer education and awareness workshop is scheduled for October. If you want to know more on the cancer awareness programs run by PNGCF, you can contact PNGCF office on 1802009 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
