The health education department of Qatar Cancer Society has organized the awareness Workshops to raise awareness about cancer in general as well as to clarify the causes and the methods of prevention, the factors of infection, ways to avoid cancer and how to live with it and supporting cancer patients.

These workshops were organized to inform the employees and the society that having cancer does not necessarily mean death, which means that cancer is a disease that can be defeated in case it has been discovered in its first stage. The lecture also consisted about the need of a healthy lifestyle to prevent cancer, such as eating healthy food, exercising on a regular basis and sleeping a sufficient number of hours a day in order to strengthen the immune system and protect the body from being susceptible to various cancers.
