October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Women at Nissan (W@N) Committee marked the occasion across AMI markets with several activities aimed at raising awareness about this critical health issue. The initiatives served as an important reminder that education and awareness remain key to early detection, subsequently increasing survival rates. Rolled out in each market across the region, the activities were developed in recognition that breast cancer not only impacts women, but extends to impact their families and loved ones as well.
