Mahogany Consult holds fourth edition of ‘October 4 Her’

Mahogany Consult, a Public Relations, Events and Change Management consultancy, has held the 4 th edition of its free breast cancer screening exercise dubbed ‘October 4 Her’ at North Legon, the company’s new office location.

This year’s event was organised in partnership with Spring Health Care, an Obstetrics and Gynecology clinic and the Charismatic Evangelistic Ministry (CEM), which was the event venue.

The event patrons described the initiative as a cause worthy of emulation and expressed the need for corporate entities to invest in such reasons that tend to improve the lives and livelihoods of women.

“I wish most organisations invested more in breast cancer screening to raise the level of awareness and teach women how to self-examine their breasts for any signs of breast cancer,” a patron said.Others shared their screening experience, “I thought it will be a painful procedure, but it was […]
