BCF Education and Empowerment Programmes

Unique to BCF, BEEP is an integrated programme series conducted through workshops that tailors to different members from all walks of life who may be affected by the diagnosis of breast cancer, or play an important role in the journey of affected women.  It aims at building the right support context with sharing sessions conducted by professionals such as dieticians, medical doctors and exercise trainers to educate and empower participants with the knowledge and skills to build a more supportive environment for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

A Certificate of Completion, accredited by BCF, will be awarded upon successful completion of the full programme.
