RAFI to Hold Free Cervical Cancer Screening on Aug. 27Posted: August 25, 2011
The Eduardo J. Aboitiz Cancer Center (EJACC) of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) will hold a free center-based cervical cancer screening activity on Aug. 27 from 8 a.m. to noon at the EJACC Conference Room located within the compound of the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center.
The screening is organized in collaboration with the Integrated Midwife Association of the Philippines-Cebu Midwife Clinic.
The screening will be an opportunity for women to detect pre-cancerous growth or any malignancy related to cervical cancer, which is the second most common cancer among women.
EJACC, which offers free breast and cervical screening every month, urges the public to undergo early detection measures—especially maintaining a healthy lifestyle and nutrition, exercise, proper hygiene, and avoiding stresses and vices—to prevent breast and cervical cancer.
EJACC is a program under the Integrated Development focus area of RAFI, addressing health issues of communities in order to create a better quality of life. Its other focus areas are Micro-finance and Entrepreneurship, Culture & Heritage, Leadership and Citizenship, and Education.
