Event Description

Cancer is a very dangerous disease causing the death of more than 8 million people every year. The chance of having cancer is 1/3 in our lifetime. Despite the relentless efforts of scientists and medical doctors during the past 2 centuries, there is no effective cure for cancer yet. In Vietnam, there are about 150,000 new cancer cases detected annually with a death rate of 74.8% (among the highest levels in the world). The risk for cancer in Vietnam is high and cancer prevention, therefore, is extremely important.

This public seminar will focus on improving our understanding about the danger of cancer, the causes of this devastating disease, and most importantly, how to reduce the risk for cancer. If we apply all cancer prevention measures, we can decrease 2/3 of the number of cancer cases. The knowledge we will learn from this seminar may save our lives and keep our loved ones healthy. Please join us in this seminar for a common goal of living a healthy and cancer-free life.
