Cervical/Breast Cancer: Mrs Akeredolu Calls for Thorough Research

On Cervical and Breast Cancer, Mrs Betty Akeredolu, Wife of the Governor of Ondo State, has charged medical researchers and practitioners to sustain continuous medical research on the disease.

The Governor’s wife said this recently in her remarks during the launching of a book titled ‘The Essential Textbook of Medicine.’ at Osun State University’s Main Campus, Osogbo, OsunState.

She said there is so much to do and academics must be on the front row in finding lasting solutions to our myriad of challenges, including medical problems.

“We want more of this type of intellectual offering from our universities, particularly continuous medical research on breast and cervical cancer being a perennial malaise that is taking down our women exponentially.” She added.

While commenting on the importance of the book, Mrs Akeredolu said, the book is timely because it is produced at a time when our medical professionals are deserting the country for greener pastures at an alarming rate, noting that it would nourish our medical libraries and make a huge relief to the dearth of medical textbooks produced by African authors.
