Warsaw and the Tricity Defended! Success of the Educational Programme.

 

Four out of six planned events of Cancer Defence’s summer educational programme are behind us. With pride, we can announce a spectacular success. Crowds gathered around the mysterious black tent in Warsaw, Gdańsk-Jelitkowo, Sopot, and on the city beach in Gdynia; over 600 people were examined by qualified dermatologists.

In addition, we gave away several thousands of educational flyers dedicated to melanoma prevention as well as several thousands of our educational gadgets to the beachgoers – that’s how, in short, Cancer Defence’s summer programme on Polish beaches looked like.

Cancer Defence’s summer educational programme generated great interest on beaches in Warsaw, Gdańsk, Sopot, and Gdynia. The participants of the events, apart from dermatoscopy and medical consultations, were also offered information on preventive care in melanoma and the other two types of cancer on which Cancer Defence is focused – lung cancer and cervical cancer.

Guests of the black tent with the characteristic hashtag #CNDF could take part in organized games meant to raise awareness of cancer prevention. They could also download a game on their mobile devices and pit themselves against three virtual adversaries – lung cancer, cervical cancer, and melanoma. Many of them later shared photos taken in the tent on social media. However, the key element of the events was their preventive aspect – thanks to the skin examinations, dozens of people were referred for additional dermatological tests, because suspicious lesions were detected on their bodies.

Guests of the Warsaw event painted T-shirts with the #CNDF logo, assisted by the ambassador of the project, fashion designer Ilona Klejnowska. In Gdańsk, in turn, the special guests were the Deputy Mayor of Gdańsk, Ewa Kamińska, and the Deputy Marshal of the Pomorskie Voivodeship, Hanna Zych-Cisoń, as well as members of the local government. Prof. Jacek Jassem took part in the Sopot event. We’d like to thank them most sincerely for their presence at our events and for supporting our programme.

The end of our summer educational programme is planned on 23 and 24 of August in Wrocław.

Look for the black tent! Come, join us!
