Event Description : FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) will launch a nation-wide health initiative with a theme “Nurturing the Nurturer” with initial focus on  the breast, cervical and other forms of cancer related to women here on September 21, 2017.

The health Initiative being launched in partnership with Apollo Hospitals group has been designed to sensitize women about importance of screening for various types of women specific   cancers including breast, cervix, ovary, gall bladder, lung, thyroid and mouth.
