Helping them understand better
Dr Mallika Tewari (Senior Consultant & Program Lead Surgical Oncology), said, “Women police staff is always on the go as they shoulder the responsibility of ensuring the safety, health, and possessions of citizens. Thus, they do not get enough time to take care of themselves and tend to ignore their health problems. It is our duty to help these women police staff members to overcome their health issues and lead a healthy life. This oncology screening program will allow in early detection of breast cancer, cervical cancer, and gynecological problems by helping women police staff seek appropriate treatment, and improve the quality of life.”
The police staff members were also taught how to do a self-breast examination, every month, and informed about the HPV vaccine for cervical cancer, as a correct diagnosis and timely treatment is the key to tackle these major health issues.”
“Policing is much about helping people, playing a pivotal role in maintaining safety, crime prevention and working towards the welfare of people. While doing so, many police staff members who suffer from major health ailments, fail to seek proper treatment due to the hectic schedules. This move is welcomed by us with open arms. I urge my fellow women police staff members to get themselves screened, and stay fit and fine, in order to serve people in a better way,” concluded the chief guests.
