Advocacy

On the __ of October, 2019, the Health Influencers Network Calabar team carried out a breast cancer awareness campaign at the Cross River National Park, Akampka, Cross River State.

It was a brightly lit day, the sun shining her countenance upon us. We 3 HIN volunteers, with 3 doctor friends gathered at the points to meet, and moved as one to our outreach location. 

Afternoon saw us arrive the Cross River National Park where the park conservator, Evang. Caroline Olory, set up a meeting with the heads of department and management staff. There we introduced HIN prior meeting with the general staff who were already gathered in a hall.

By mid-afternoon, we had access to all staff and the session began with a prayer and a brief introduction of HIN and our mission at the park by a leader of the sales/marketing team.

Dr. Louisa took over, with a brief discussion on breast cancer and what it was, following which Dr. Goodness gave a demonstration of breast self-examination.

We ended with an interactive question and answer segment, what with our very enthusiastic audience, ably answered by Dr. Joshua.

The sales team gave a vote of thanks, and the Park Conservator rounded up with words of appreciation, hinting at a partnership with us to spread the word to other communities.

The meeting ended with a word of prayer taken by the HR Manager for HIN.

 

After a bit of interaction and pleasantries, the team started on its way back to Calabar. It was a successful outreach, exceeding expectations.
