Galatoni – September 25, 2023
Six meetings with experts. Every Wednesday, from September 27 to November 8, at 6 p.m., in the underground former oil mill room of Palazzo Marchesal, in Galatone
On Wednesday 27 September in Galatoni, in the room of the former underground oil mill of the Marchesel Palace, the “Prevention Seminars” organized by the Italian League Against Cancer (LILT) of Lecce – Department of Scientific Publishing – and LILT Galatoni will be held. We start with the sponsorship of ASL Lecce and the Municipality of Galatone.
“We invite all citizens to participate in this important session of symposiums dedicated to the crucial topic of cancer prevention and which will bring together many experts – emphasize oncologists Carmine Cerullo and Giuseppe Serafizza, respectively President and Scientific Director of Lilt of Lecce – because science is erasing… Illiteracy is the first essential step to combating the cancer emergency. We will first talk about primary prevention, that is, combating the known risk factors, behavioral and environmental, that increase the risk of developing the disease and in which it is necessary to intervene to reduce the alarming increase in infection rates (more than 390 thousand diagnoses new cancer cases in Italy in 2022, according to the latest Aiom-Airtum report), but also secondary prevention for early diagnosis of the most prevalent forms of cancer: lung cancer, breast cancer, genitourinary cancer and gastrointestinal tumors. We will also address the issue of guideline adequacy for the correct use of resources in The field of healthcare, a subject closely related to people’s health and which can suffer serious harm due to the overuse of diagnostic services and drug treatments. Our goal – as oncologists have concluded – is to ensure that scientific knowledge is no longer restricted to scientific, technological and professional fields, but rather an essential set for the individual as a whole to protect public health.
