“Let’s Talk About Cancer Screening” – A Conversation Needed In The Chinese Community

A 2018 study by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) showed cancer screening could help detect cancer early.

CanRevive will hold a public information session (funded by the Multicultural Health Week) on bowel cancer, cervical cancer and breast cancer screening programs to enhance Chinese awareness of preventive cancer screening and provide identification of early symptoms of cancer, and be able to take appropriate action as soon as these symptoms are detected.

The event is organized by CanRevive, co-organized by the Australian Chinese Medical Association (ACMA), and supported by the Hong Kong Medical Society of Australia (HKMSA). Details of the event are as follows:
