Community Outreach

Programme

​Community Outreach 

In line with our mission to lead and promote anti-cancer advocacy, NCCS organises cancer awareness roadshows and public education activities in the heartlands. We believe in empowering the public with the right knowledge and skills to help themselves and their loved ones. Through exhibits and interactive activities at these public education programmes, cancer information is made more accessible to the community.
