COMtech Business Park was able to play host on Tuesday October 14th, 2014, to this months’ Rise & Shine Morning Connection which is an event held by UNCP’s Regional Center and Pembroke Area Chamber of Commerce. October being Breast Cancer Awareness month it was only befitting that was the topic of the day. Leslie Salloum MD, FACS, a board certified general surgeon from Scotland Memorial’s Surgical and GI was the guest speaker.
Dr. Salloum provided a variety of knowledge about breast cancer from how it’s diagnosed to how it can be treated and much more. The key factor in Dr. Salloum’s message was self-awarness of one’s health and by taking simple steps, like calling your provider to schedule an appoitment or even doing self-examinations at home.The best protection is early detection, we all must take responsibility for our own health and raising the awareness on breast cancer.
