Jamaica: Teleconferences To Drive Cancer Awareness In Westmoreland

Westmoreland-based MistyBlue Cancer Care Foundation will spearhead several teleconferences to highlight statistics and trends relating to cancer in the parish.

These will be streamed on various social media platforms during the second Wednesday of each month from August to December, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The foundation’s chairman, Dorothy Satchwell, indicated that each month the teleconference will focus on one or two of the most common types of cancers locally.

“During the month of August, we are looking at cancer in general, particularly on the high mortality rate of cancer we have in Westmoreland over the last 14 years,” said Satchwell.
