Winning Against Cancer Public Symposium 2016

 

Up to Date with Singapore's TOP Cancers - Colorectal Cancer & Lung Cancer

 

About the Winning Against Cancer Public Symposium 2016

Every year, the National University Cancer Institute, Singapore (NCIS) organises the ‘Winning Against Cancer’ (WAC) public symposium to raise awareness of cancer and impart critical cancer knowledge to the general public, cancer patients and their caregivers. This year's WAC public symposium will focus on Singapore’s top Cancers – Colorectal Cancer and Lung Cancer.

 

Studies have shown that one in three people will experience cancer in their lifetime. Through this symposium, we aim to equip the public with tools for cancer prevention, and empower patients and caregivers with knowledge on the latest advancements in treatment options to lessen the burden of the cancer journey.

 

Join us for a fruitful day of valuable insights as our multi-disciplinary team of experienced specialists and medical professionals share information spanning from cancer prevention to cancer rehabilitation. Save the date and register now!
