PHILIPSBURG–Rotary Club of St. Maarten accepted a large donation from NAGICO Insurances in support of its upcoming Oncology (cancer) Conference. The Rotary Club, in conjunction with the Windward Islands Medical Association, will be holding a conference for medical professionals on the state of cancer and care/treatment in St. Maarten at the Belair Community Centre on October 6 and 7. A free meeting on cancer, also at the Belair Community Centre, will precede this conference on Thursday, October 5, from 6:45 to 9:00pm. Presentations on various types of cancer, care and treatment will be included, along with the opportunity for members of the public to ask the presenters questions. The session will be opened by Minister of Health, Labour and Social Affairs Emil Lee, and will include presentations by a panel of visiting expert doctors and insurance experts from NAGICO.
Rotary Club President John Caputo accepted the donation from NAGICO. “This year we are looking to expand access to this very important public meeting on cancer, by offering free shuttle bus service from various locations and live-streaming the session online so all can participate. This donation enables our Club to continue its multi-year initiative to support public education in St. Maarten, both for our medical professionals and for our residents.
“On behalf of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten, I wish to thank NAGICO for their continued commitment to this initiative, now in its third year. I would also like to thank the Windward Islands Medical Association for their efforts in improving the knowledge of our physicians and the community. Together, we can truly make a difference,” said Caputo.
NAGICO Group of Companies Chief Executive Officer Dwayne Elgin said, “It is our pleasure to partner with the Rotary Club of St. Maarten and the Windward Island Medical Association for a cause that touches countless members of our community. We are continuously working to improve our products and cater to the needs of the islands.
“NAGICO believes that supporting this initiative will encourage more people to change their lifestyle and make smarter decisions. Please remember to come on October 5 for the free public session on cancer at the Belair Community Centre at 6:45pm.”
