National University of Medical Sciences joined the nation and the world in creating awareness about breast cancer which some reports say, affects 90,000 women in Pakistan every year and kills 40,000 of them.

“It is tragic that so many women die from a disease that is treatable, especially if detected early, simply because they were embarrassed to discuss it with doctors or any of their family member or friends,” said Dr. Rida Fatima Saeed and Dr. Shaista Aslam, Assistant Professors, Department of Biological Sciences (DBS) NUMS, who have been spearheading an awareness campaign during the month by holding a webinar, awareness walk and informal group discussion at the university.
