The Case for Cancer Screenings | 癌症篩查的重要性

October 23, 2021
1:00 pm
2:00 pm


Join us for an informational event about breast health and the importance of cancer screenings. With the double impact of COVID-19 and anti-Asian violence affecting Oakland Chinatown neighborhoods, more residents are delaying critical screening appointments out of fear of leaving the safety of their homes and visiting healthcare providers. Experts from Asian Health Services, Epic Care, and the American Cancer Society will discuss the importance of regular cancer screenings and answer general questions about cancer screening. This event will be presented in English with Cantonese captions.

請齊來參加一個有關乳房健康和癌症篩查的重要性的講座。隨著covid-19和反亞裔暴力事件對奧克蘭唐人街社區的雙重影響,越來越多的居民害怕外出,因而推遲拜訪醫療保健者提供的篩查預约服務。 這次活動由來自亞洲健康服務,Epic Care和美國癌症協會的專家將會討論定期篩查的重要性並回答您可能遇到的任何問題。 本次活動將以英語進行,並附有粵語翻譯。歡迎區內人士擁躍參加,為自身的健康邁出重要的一步。
