Both, Dr. Dudhani and Gehan are eager to share their knowledge and experience to help educate others on the importance of timely screenings to increase early detection of the disease. Post-workshop, guests can discuss their thoughts and meet other women over a complimentary afternoon tea experience that serves a selection of scrumptious canapes, along with some delicious hot and cool beverages.

For the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we want to open our doors to women without any cost so that we can offer individuals a better understanding of breast cancer and how to avoid risks at earlier stages. As a hotel, we place importance on promoting a healthy lifestyle and we pride ourselves in being able to provide our venues as a platform to increase awareness on the importance of health and wellness in the city."

Dr Abdulkareem Al Olama, Chief Executive Officer of Al Jalila Foundation says, "Breast cancer remains one of the most serious health challenges affecting women globally and our only hope to improve survival rates is to invest in medical research to improve the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Breast Cancer Awareness Month has been championed in the UAE for over 20 years with the pink ribbon standing as a strong symbol of hope. Every year during October our #PINKtober campaign, in partnership with Brest Friends, receives overwhelming support from schools, corporates, retailers, sports clubs and community-led organisations to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer treatment and research in the UAE. #PINKtober events have the power to bring communities together to champion important causes and we are proud of our partners extraordinary efforts to make a difference to the lives of women affected by breast cancer."
