Hospiten Bavaro and Hospiten Santo Domingo carried out a series of actions throughout the month of October to make the public aware of the fight against breast cancer.
Press campaigns, leaflets and talks focused on the importance of prevention and early detection in the battle against the disease. The combination of these actions responds to the Hospiten Group’s social commitment to supporting preventive health education of interest to the general public.
Dr Edward Feliz Abreu, Gynecologist - Obstetrician at Hospiten Bavaro gave a talk to employees of the Hard Rock Café Hotel entitled "Detection and Prevention of Breast Cancer".
Breast Cancer is the most common malignant tumor in women. Making women aware of the importance of being familiar with self-examination techniques, regular check-ups and mammograms is fundamental to detecting the disease in time.
Early diagnosis is vital because curing the disease depends on it - the chances of curing breast cancer can be as high as 100% if detected in time. A woman must get to know her own body well and be able to recognize any warning signs. Prevention is the best treatment.
