Medical Imaging and Therapeutic Sciences students at CPUT marked World Cancer Day by raising awareness about the Big C among their peers.
Third-year Radiation Therapy students used balloons, body paint and sweets in different colours to educate their fellow students on the Bellville campus about the different types of cancer.
February 4 marks World Cancer Day, a global awareness-raising initiative by the Union for International Cancer Control.
The students designed and displayed a poster with all the different types of cancers and the colours that represent each type.
Staff and students could place messages to family members affected by cancer in glass jars.
“The planning and the implementation for today’s event was all the work of the students. We registered our event on the map of impact of worldcancerday.org [the map curates all of the activities that took place around the world for World Cancer Day], “said Lizel Hudson, Work-Integrated Learning and Language Coordinator for the Faculty of Health and Wellness Sciences
