Hope Van: - Health Check Up Camps & Awareness of Cancer
Indian Cancer Society (ICS) has donated the “Hope Van” to Kolhapur Cancer Centre which is used to arrange health check up camps in the rural areas of Western Maharashtra, Karnataka & Goa. These camps are used to spread awareness about Cancers, deliver lectures as well as check up and detect cancer at an early stage and then give proper guidance to the suspects.
Social Media Awareness
Every alternate Wednesday, our consultants and specialists deliver cancer awareness lectures in a very simple and understandable language. Anybody having access to internet and a mobile device can attend the lectures and get the most updated knowledge on different cancers. Kolhapur Cancer Centre has also started an educational series on YouTube Live on alternate Saturdays for all the doctors who want to update their knowledge in the new trends in Cancer diagnosis & treatments. This will not only help the doctors themselves in updating their own knowledge but also benefit the society as this may help in early detection of cancer.All the knowledge hub is available on our YouTube channel
