Breast Cancer Awareness

24 October 2019

This October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is being embraced in Cockett Dubai as it cares about the wellbeing and education of its employees. 

With the help of Dr Aagje Bais, a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Mediclinic Arabian Ranches, we’ve learnt that Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women, according to the National Cancer Institute. Furthermore, women are diagnosed more than men, and surprisingly men can also develop the disease.

Following a most interesting and informative presentation by Dr. Aagie Bais, employees were able to have a “Question Time” to discuss their doubts, questions and experiences with her.

Employees at Cockett were also invited to support Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink on Wednesday October 23rd, 2019. 

“In addition, to the educational and awareness factor of the session, it was much fun to have Dr. Aagie with us. Her wit and experience made us more aware of this important topic and we very much enjoyed her humour too. We`d love to see Dr. Aagie back with other well being health related sessions in our office”- one employee said.
