Kuwait, 19th October 2022: Burgan Bank recently concluded a health awareness workshop organized for its staff in collaboration with Royale Hayat Hospital, as part of its month-long Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. Under the umbrella of the Bank’s comprehensive social responsibility strategy, the workshop was aimed at spreading awareness amongst the Bank’s staff, especially women, as well as highlighting key means of prevention and early detection.
The workshop included a lecture by Dr. Noha Al Saleh, General Surgery and Surgical Oncology Consultant at Royale Hayat Hospital; focusing on the most important facts about breast cancer, including its types, symptoms, and risk factors, as well as its means of treatment and prevention. At the end of the lecture, Dr. Al Saleh answered the participants’ questions on breast cancer, such as the best practices for reducing the spread and risk.
On her part, Ms. Reema Al Asbahi, Senior Manager - Internal Communications - Human Resources and Development, commented: “We were delighted to host Dr. Noha Al Saleh, who as an expert in her field, was able to simplify the dense medical information regarding breast cancer to provide our Burgan Bank team with clear, understandable and meaningful insights. It was an important and highly beneficial session providing our staff with key information that every woman and every family should know about this topic. That is especially important to us as we continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our staff, and initiatives like this go a long way in promoting a culture of health awareness and healthy living.”
Commenting on the workshop, Ms. Hessa Hussain Al-Najadah, Senior Manager - Corporate and CSR Communications at Burgan Bank stated: “We, at Burgan Bank, are proud of the positive- impact-focused partnership we share with Royale Hayat Hospital, especially at such a time when we need to raise awareness within our community, using experts with those with knowledge and resources. Initiatives such as this contribute to educating the public through sharing and discussing the scientific facts of the disease and the means for limiting its spread. All of this in turn can contribute to saving many women’s lives. As a financial institution and an integrated part of Kuwait’s society, we believe that the role we play in spreading awareness on breast cancer is only part of the greater efforts that every individual and cooperation or organization must contribute to.”
