IEEE-WIE-GRIET in collaboration with Street Cause (GRIET) conducted a workshop on Cancer
awareness in the college. We had knowledgeable guests, Dr. Praveen Reddy, oncologist from
Continental hospitals and Dr Sharda, a gynaecologist who addressed a group of 175 female students and
faculty. The session started at 11 am, with Dr.Praveen Reddy giving a brief introduction about Breast
Cancer and alerted us on the worrying spurt of breast cancer in the last few years. The audience listened
with rapt attention as he moved on to the causes and early detection of breast cancer. Finally, he spoke
on how to root out cancer in its bud and in the later stages and how people carried on normal lives with
cancer during surgical treatment.
There was an interactive session at the end where students put forward their queries to Dr.PraveenReddy.
