On Saturday, breast screenings will be carried out by an AUC physician and health screenings by AUC students.

The screening will also include gathering the following information: height/weight, blood pressure, blood glucose and blood cholesterol.

In June 2017, the three aforementioned partners started a breast abnormalities screening study with the aim to screen up to 500 women in a period of one-year with the possibility to extend for another year in order to reach the target number.

The purpose of the study is to identify breast abnormalities that can be risk factors for diseases of the breast as early as possible and to refer for further diagnosis and treatment.
