In collaboration with the National Association of Women with Breast Cancer “Alma Zois”, the Municipality of Keratsini & Drapetsona organized a scientific and informational meeting concerning the prevention and early diagnosis of breast cancer. The meeting, which was hosted at the Cultural Center Anthony Samarakis, was held on Wednesday May 18th, 2011. Given that Professor Linos is an avid proponent of “Alma Zois” important work, he was one of the key speakers at the event.
Dr. Linos’ speech, entitled “Prevention and early detection of breast cancer”, stressed the importance of self-examination and mammography, giving useful tips on the preventative measures any woman can take.
The welcoming speech was delivered by Deputy Mayor Ms. Georgia Georgakopoulou and the President of “Alma Zois”, Ms. Diane Gavriilidou. Afterwards, Ms. Christina Mitsis, psychologist and member of the national Psychotherapist’s Association, delivered a speech and two volunteers of the Association shared their inspiring, personal experiences.
