He made this statement during a medical workshop organized by the Human Resource department of Global Media Alliance Broadcasting Company (GMA-BC) for its employees. The activity is to help create awareness on breast cancer prevention and treatment, as the world marks Pink October.

Dr. Kenneth Dadzie discussed the issue of breast cancer and atherosclerosis. Staff of GMA were educated on the risk factors associated with breast cancer and how it can be prevented. Among other things, Dr. Dadzie encouraged women to conduct self-breast examination at home and also go for regular check-ups at the hospital.

He also added that the working class were at a higher risk of getting diagnosed with diseases such as Hypertension, Diabetes, Stroke, Heart Attack and Cholesterol. He, thus, advised that people should regularly check their blood pressure to prevent these five heart related diseases.

“We cherish our staff. In as much as they work hard, they also need to take care of their health. Also, since October is breast cancer awareness month, we found it appropriate to invite a medical doctor from Impact Clinic to educate the staff on breast cancer. We have also made provisions for our staff to check for breast cancer at Impact Clinic without cost. I believe it is a step in the right direction”, he said.
