National Bank of Fujairah Joins Breast Cancer Awareness Efforts
Conducts educational sessions for female employees across the UAE
National Bank of Fujairah announced today that it is hosting a series of educational sessions to raise awareness of the importance of early detection as the cornerstone of breast cancer awareness. The initiative falls under the bank’s employee wellbeing programme (EWP), led by the human resources team with support from the management committee, to champion the mental and physical health of all staff members across the bank. This initiative was launched to mark the international Breast Cancer Awareness Month and will be observed throughout the month of October.
Abdulla Aleter, NBF's Head of HR commented: “Breast cancer is by far the most common form of cancer among women worldwide. We hope that all participants walk away today with a better understanding of how they can detect early warning signs and take proper measures to protect themselves. At NBF, we are committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure that our employees and their families can lead a healthy life, and continue to be part of our success story.”
Speaking at the event, Dr. Annalisa Perego, a breast surgeon from Well Woman Clinic, said: “By looking out for symptoms early on and having regular check-ups, women can significantly increase the chances of prevention and recovery.” Following the session, the participants received free check-up vouchers as the first step towards encouraging regular monitoring and early detection.
