There was a medical booth where medics were spreading awareness on early detection of breast cancer. “An important part of being aware of your breast health is making sure that you are performing self-examinations regularly. While you’re in the shower or before bed, a few simple steps can be taken to check for abnormalities and to become familiar with your breasts so you can recognize any problems that may occur,” said Mahalakshmi Kamalakannan, founder, Maha Hair and Beauty Academy. Adding to this, Menaka Ramkumar, CEO, DA Extensionzz said, we have just initiated our awareness campaign through this world record. Our main intention is to connect with all corporates. We are reaching out to different brands to get connected with us to promote the awareness camp and take it to the national level.
