SU Organizes Free Cancer Screening Camps with Yuvraj Singh’s Charity
Shoolini University of Biotechnology and Management Sciences has once again shouldered its social responsibility by organizing a series of events to spread awareness about cancer on World Cancer Day, February 4, 2017. The events were organized in association with Cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s charity ‘YOUWECAN’ that includes a free cancer checkup camp.
The university and YOUWECAN organized a free breast and oral cancer awareness cum checkup camp at village Kumarhatti, which is located near Solan. Villagers from Barog village participated in this camp. They were screened for oral and breast cancer by specialist from Yuvraj’s charity. Participants were also educated about the nature of disease and the importance of regular screening.
In addition to cancer checkup camps, university students performed a street play on the Solan Mall Road following a walkathon to spread awareness about various types of cancers. It is not the first time that university has shown concern towards need for cancer awareness. In past too, university had organized cancer check up camp for free in association with YOUWECAN, awareness drive around Solan and regular visits by experts to people who cannot afford screening.
February 4th marks the day of World Cancer Day. People all over the world celebrate lives of those who are fighting cancer and died battling it.
