Shanghai Cancer Center
In Spring 2018, our colleagues in China worked together with the Fudan University Shanghai Cancer Center (SCC) to organize events designed to raise awareness about colorectal cancer (CRC) prevention and treatment.
According to the Shanghai Center for Disease Control and Prevention, CRC is the second most prevalent cancer in Shanghai after lung cancer.
In April 2018, American Securities colleagues organized a community event that included lectures on CRC prevention by three physicians. American Securities volunteers assisted with the set up and staffing of the site, as well as with the preparation and distribution of 200 donated canvas bags printed with the slogan “Screening Saves Lives,” which included cancer prevention brochures provided by Fudan Hospital.
In May 2018, American Securities colleagues also held an event for two leading charitable organizations, Shanghai Charity Foundation and Shanghai Volunteers Foundation, which will partner with SCC to promote CRC prevention and treatment. A donation ceremony, where American Securities formally presented donations to executives from each foundation, was followed by a series of lectures on CRC prevention and treatment to an audience of more than 150 members of the local community.
The Fudan University Shanghai Cancer Center engages in clinical practice, medical education, oncological research, and cancer prevention. Founded in 1931 as the first hospital specializing in oncology in China, SCC is deeply committed to providing patients with quality medical services in a palatable and comfortable treatment environment.
Our Giving Back report debuted in 2011 as a testament to how those of us at American Securities, and our portfolio companies, live our value of Giving Back.
