Bliss Foundation

JDMC-Bliss Initiative

Breast cancer is a growing problem and in a developing country like ours, this situation is compounded by an acute lack of awareness. This is manifest in the fact that even today, most breast cancer cases are diagnosed in advanced stages. In a world where Breast Cancer cases are increasing exponentially, it is important for educational institutions to join hands with the medical fraternity and build bridges to help spread awareness about the disease. It is with this rationale that JDMC joined hands with Bliss Foundation to spread awareness about Breast Cancer through the initiative - Committed to Conquer Cancer

Programme Coordinator: Dr.PayalNagpal (Dept. of English, JDMC)

A series of workshops have been initiated to spread awareness about the disease.

Organised by.: Dr.Payal Nagpal.

This was the third workshop in the collaborative series between JDMC and Bliss Foundation. This workshop was conducted specially for the non-teaching employees of JDMC.This workshop was special because the age group of women ranged from 25 years to 60 years.The workshop was attended by about 18 women. The women seemed quite intrigued as the workshop progressed. The question answer session was interactive.While feeling for the lumps on the dummies, surprisingly a few identified a similar lump that they felt. They would be going for medical examination soon. Early detection leads to better and early cure !
