The ‘Breast Cancer Meanings’ fundraising gala dinner was held on Friday, 16 March 2018 in support of the NUS Asian Breast Cancer Research Fund.

All funds raised go towards the research project led by Associate Professor Mikael Hartman, Programme Leader (Breast Cancer Prevention) that seeks to better understand Asian women’s health-seeking behaviours towards breast cancer and to encourage uptake of breast cancer screening and early treatment.

The book titled ‘Breast Cancer Meanings: Journeys Across Asia’ features findings from the pilot study conducted by researchers from SSHSPH and NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, and was unveiled and presented to guest-of-honour State President Halimah Yacob at the dinner.

Published by NUS Press in Asia and NIAS Press in Europe and North America, the book is available at major book stores in Singapore and may also be purchased online here.
