Wife of Saudi ambassador to France holds breast cancer awareness symposium

Wife of Saudi ambassador to France holds breast cancer awareness symposium

Fatima Al-Ruwaili, wife of the Saudi Ambassador to France, hosted a women’s symposium to enhance awareness about breast cancer.
In her opening speech, Al-Ruwaili stressed the importance to raise awareness of the disease, its danger, and its rate of spread, as well as the role of examination and early detection in enhancing the chances of full recovery.

She also gave an overview of the breast cancer healthcare system in the Kingdom, which includes free periodic examination and its facilitation through mobile carts and examination units in shopping and entertainment centers and other public facilities. She said that this contributed to the early detection and complete treatment of discovered cases.

The symposium was attended by officials of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), as well as a number of health professionals, representatives of relevant organizations, the wives of ambassadors accredited to France, and a group of women from the French community.

At the end of the symposium, a lunch, including Saudi coffee and some popular dishes, was served.
