Pin It

The Lions Clubs of Tropical Gardens hosted the 2nd meeting of their annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign at the Savannah Primary School.  The presenters were Dr Andrew Robinson from the Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital and Ms. Andrea Hill, Nutritionist at Kirks Supermarket. The meeting commenced shortly after 7:30 pm with over 60 women and two men in attendance.

In his presentation Dr Robinson outlined the facts on breast cancer and urged the audience to know the risk factors and be vigilant with their health. One such way that they could become vigilant is to ensure that a nutritious diet is adopted and maintained. Ms. Andrea Hill of Kirk’s supermarket was on hand to ably outline the importance of nutrition for a healthy lifestyle. She encourages the audience to get in the habit of choosing healthier foods and maintaining a healthy lifestyle to minimize the risk of cancer. Ms. Hill informed the audience that she was available on Monday afternoons and Friday mornings at Kirk’s supermarket to offer free advice on shopping for nutritious foods.

The audience expressed their gratitude to the Lions for hosting the meeting. The Lions treated the audience to a healthy snack while distributing mammogram vouchers. The theme for this year’s campaign is “Education the road to wellness”.
