Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) joined Qatar Cancer Society to participate in Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a global campaign celebrated around the world to mark Pink October and raise awareness on the importance of early detection. Specialists from Qatar Cancer Society led an information session where staff of QFBA, Qatar Financial Centre (QFC), Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre (QICDRC), along with students and faculty from QFBA-Northumbria University attended to learn about early detection and common misconceptions.

Breast Cancer Awareness is celebrated globally during the month of October,  to raise awareness and educate the public on the leading causes of breast cancer, most vulnerable groups susceptible, preventative mechanisms, and the critical importance of early detection and mammograms.

The  information session held was a part of the QFBA’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)  program which focuses on community-based initiatives, particularly on breast cancer and the importance of early detection. The initiative also reaffirmed the Academy’s interest in supporting the community in which it operates by positively impacting its development as well as that of its members.

With a continued aim to develop the nation’s human capital through educating the youth on leading issues concerning society, QFBA intends to facilitate in the development of a new generation of socially aware youth aligning with the Qatar National Vision 2030.
