As the year ends, we are finishing the realization of educational meetings at the range of the project financed by Norway Grants. We managed to realize more meetings than we planned before. We led 148 meetings in 15 voivodeships in Poland.
In total, more than 4 thousands of participants took place in meetings. A lot of woman, who were involved in meetings, registered for mammography tests and made a test in our mobile mammography vehicles (women aged from 50 to 69 years old made a prophylactic test and women aged from 40 to 49 and 70 to 75 made a diagnosis test).
Meetings were organized in places gathering woman – town halls, district authority offices, culture centers, health centers, libraries, companies employing woman. We also got through to residential homes, Social Welfare Centers and hospices.
Not only women were interested in the theme of breast cancer prophylactic – men also participated in our meetings. We hope that attendees of our appointments will become ambassadors of this important theme and will give information to other woman in their surroundings.
We would like to thank heartily to all people who helped us to organize the meetings. It would be impossible to get through to such a big group of women in local societies without your help.
At the same time, we would like to inform that the end of the project doesn’t mean the end of our educational activities. We have already planned next meetings in upcoming year. Thanks to anatomical breast models and multimedia projectors, bought at the range of Norway Grants, we have an opportunity to lead next meetings. We encourage to contact us and check our current possibilities to organize a meeting in your city.
