Denning Law School takes initiative for Pink Ribbon Awareness

Raising awareness

In honour of International Breast Cancer Awareness month, a breast cancer awareness session was held at Karachi’s leading law university, Denning Law School. The session was presided over by Dr Fareya Usmani, Karachi’s most renowned general surgeon, laparoscopic surgeon and breast surgeon. At the session, Dr Fareya took centre stage in providing insight on how to identify and prevent the deadly disease. To make the session more interesting, she turned it into an interactive session where misconceptions about breast cancer were met such as: Is cancer contagious? What is the step by step process of dealing with cancer? She also educated people on the fact that not only women but men are also affected by this disease. The objective of the session was to raise awareness amongst the aspiring lawyers about breast cancer and the importance of early detection, as well as encouraging them to look after their general health and wellbeing.
