“Together with Ain Society, we have started a Cancer Education bus to raise awareness of the symptoms and signs of cancer and the importance of screening. Cancer is the number one killer in Singapore and unfortunately, many do not seek medical attention for their condition until the tumour is very advanced and no longer curable.
We hope the Cancer Education bus can enable us to reach out to more segments of the population. The Cancer Education Information Services (CEIS) team led by Nurse Manager Ms Jenna Teo, as well as several other colleagues in the Division of Community Outreach and Philanthropy, have certainly been instrumental in turning this vision into reality.”
