Cancer Wellness Retreat at Casa San Pablo

Carewell held a 2-day respite at Casa San Pablo in San Pablo, Laguna last Sept. 5&6, 2023. The members enjoyed the fun but therapeutic activities which included Collage, Pizza Making, Pain Reprocessing Therapy, Aroma Meditation, /Sunrise Somatic Movement, Rambutan picking (rather, eating...), Painting/Jewelry Making and lastly a very relaxing Osteopathy session for everyone. Everybody went home with a happy smile as they left the place full of happy memories and a bag of rambutan each. We want to thank Jun de Leon who spearheaded the series of activities which started with 2 sessions of nutrition talks at the Life Science Center at BGC. Our heartfelt thanks to Jun for making this Cancer Wellness Retreat possible. We can't wait to hear more from Jun about his future wellness projects with Carewell.

Asian Breast Center Demonstrates Thermalytix at Carewell Office

Last May 4, 2023, Carewell was given by the Asian Breast Center a demonstration of the Thermalytix, a computer aided diagnostic engine that is powered by Artificial Intelligence. Ituses a high resolution thermal sensing device and a cloud hosted analytics solution for analysing the thermal images for reliable, early and accurate breast cancer screening. Multiple clinical studies results comparing Thermalytix with current standard of care have been published in peer reviewed conference/journals that indicate very high accuracy of Thermalytix that is non-inferior to X-Ray Mammography in general, and 25% better sensitivity than mammography in women with dense breasts

Cancer Community Events

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease, lung disease and cancer account for 7 out of 10 deaths worldwide, with inequitable impacts where poverty is high. As the world continues to navigate the pandemic, governments must prioritize smart and strategic investments to reduce the growing burden of NCDs and close the widening health gaps due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vital Strategies and NCD Alliance held a VitalTalks event—Investing in Health: NCD Prevention and COVID-19 Recovery and is now available to watch online.
The event was moderated by Amanda Glassman, Executive Vice President and Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development with remarks from José Luis Castro, President and CEO, Vital Strategies and Nina Renshaw, Policy and Advocacy Director, NCD Alliance.
