Teacher Saritha, Science HOD, welcomed the zoom participants.Students were taken out of the regular MS Teams classes and were sent to the zoom auditorium. After the campaign activity, students resumed their classes in MS Teams.
Students of grade 8 presented speeches, anecdotes of cancer survivors, skit to the students for a substantial change. Presenters appeared to the students one by one with their presentations which were imperative and realistic.
Eventually this campaign made everyone understand that we can work together to reduce cancer risk factors; we can overcome barriers to early diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care. Everyone felt hopeful that we can work together to improve cancer control and achieve global targets to reduce premature mortality from cancer and NCDs.
