Annual seminar on cancer and non communicable disease


CANCER SAHYOG THE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT GROUP OF INDIAN CANCER SOCIETY INVITES YOU TO THE ANNUAL SEMINAR ON CANCER & NON COMMUNICABLE DISEASES on 28 September 2014, 9:30 am At the UN Conference on Global Health in 2012, the World woke to the fact that non-communicable disease had overtaken communicable disease as the prime cause of its burden of mortality & morbidity. More people are dying of Coronary Heart Disease & Strokes, Respiratory Disease, Diabetes & Cancer than of Communicable Diseases like malaria, TB, Encephalitis etc. Governments address the risk factors of Communicable Disease because an epidemic wipes out populations in very quick time. Deaths from NCDshave been a silent epidemic. None of the Big 4 is a Notifiable Disease.

India is today the Heart Disease capital of the World. India is also the Diabetes capital of the World. It has taken Health experts time to realize the magnitude of the problem. It has also taken time to understand the deaths occur at younger ages, & productive years of life. Cancer Sahyog, the support group of Indian Cancer Society has planned a Seminar to understand the connections of each NCD to Cancer, at its Annual Seminar scheduled for Sunday 28 September 2014 at the Multi-Purpose Hall, India International Centre, Max Mueller Road, New Delhi; between 9.30am to 1.30 pm. Eminent experts from various fields of medicine will address the following subjects:

1.NCDs – Leading Cause of Death Worldwide

2.Diabetes Melitus & Cancer – Deadly dual Diagnosis

3.Chronic Respiratory Disease masquerading as Lung Cancer

4.Heart Health & Cancer: Treatment impacting Heart Health

5.Multiple Connections – Obesity; Diabetes – Heart Disease – Cancer Our Panel of doctors, come from the best hospitals in Delhi & NCR (List is attached).

Our Chief Guest is the distinguished Dr S.Y. Quraishi, ex Chief Election Commissioner of India (2006 -2012) who has consented to grace us with his presence. The seminar addresses issues of vital concern, as NCDs do not distinguish between rich & poor, urban & rural populations. We hope that this will find the widest dissemination to benefit the society at large.
