World Cancer Day 2015


I didn’t realise it’s World Cancer Day on 4th February. Saw a post on FB about it. Googled and found the official global press release. Check out the link above. There’s mention of increased funding into cancer services worldwide and some suggestions on prevention methods.


In Singapore, according to the National University Hospital’s calendar of events there is a World Cancer Day Public Symposium happening on Saturday.
