· In Singapore, September is Head & Neck Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, we try to raise awareness of Head & Neck Cancer through our annual public forum, which cover topics like prevention, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and supportive care. There will also be an interactive session with cancer survivors and their caregivers where the audience can learn and be encouraged from real life experiences.
· Last year, the forum was oversubscribed (300 people maximum capacity) and many participants found the topics covered useful and informative.
This year our forum will be on the 22nd of September (Sunday) from 1.30pm to 5.00pm. It will be held at the NUHS Tower Block Auditorium on Level 1 (1E Kent Ridge Road, NUHS Tower Block, Singapore 119228). The forum is free so that all can attend and is held in partnership with Singapore Cancer Society. The title of the forum is “Breaking the Fear Factor in Cancer”.
