On Saturday, 4th November 2017 twelve AIMU students including the AMSA-AIMU board members participated in a Breast Cancer Screening Camp at Babonneau Primary School. The group of students spent the entire day serving as volunteers to assist medical practitioners in helping St. Lucia residents.
The participating students mentioned that the experience was very informative and they learned a lot from this experience. The students also had chances to interact with various medical practitioners working in the field of cancer in St. Lucia. Students assisted the doctors in examining and screening visitors. This community service event helped the students in learning about various aspects of medicine and breast cancer.
