The first Daffodil Campaign set for this month was successfully hosted yesterday at the Royal Papua Yacht Club, Port Moresby.
The cancer education and awareness workshop is part of PNG Cancer Foundations drive towards deliver cancer information to the public.
With information sharing a big challenge in the country, such workshops create opportunity for the public to be taught on the importance of healthy lifestyles to avoid the risk of getting cancer.
The workshop yesterday saw more than 200 participants including students from the Institute of Business Studies University plus the public.
Gathered participants were taught on cancer prevention measures as prevention is an important step to avoiding the risk of getting cancer.
PNG Cancer Foundation CEO Dadi Toka at the opening of the workshop thanked those gathered for the workshop.
“I encourage you to take what you will learn during the workshop back and educate your friends and family about cancer and cancer prevention today”, Toka said.
The workshop was conducted by the PNG Cancer Foundation in partnership with JM Ocean Avenue. The second workshop will be held on the 14th of August at the Royal Papua Yacht Club.
Again, registration is free for individuals, company and groups. Those interested to participate, can contact PNG Cancer Foundation office on 180 2009 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
With the successful workshop, the PNG Cancer Foundation thanks sponsors JM Ocean Avenu, Royal Papua Yacht Club and supporters Moore Printing and DHL for making the workshop possible.
