Birzeit University Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Birzeit University is breaking out the pink straws this month to support the fight against breast cancer, coinciding with International Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The campaign, organized by the Deanship of Student Affairs and the Faculty of Pharmacy, Nursing and Health Professions, will be hosting a wide array of activities to promote the concept of early detection and regular check-ups in Palestinian society. Information will be distributed to raise awareness about breast cancer, while providing instructions on how to conduct self-tests and highlighting the importance of early detection.

Birzeit University is committed to providing a supportive environment that helps students be more aware of critical causes that directly affect student, faculty and staff wellbeing and health by fostering resilience through a range of educational, preventative and support initiatives.
