Pudukkottai Center Opens!

Mar 8, 2018

We are very happy to announce that the first Cancer Screening and Prevention Center is now open in Pudukkottai. Cancer Institute Foundation has fully funded this center and is raising funds for the upcoming centers in Thiruvannamalai and Namakkal. Dr. Shanta’s vision is to open these centers at every district of Tamil Nadu.

The center was opened on Monday, March 26, 2018 with a grand gala ceremony. We are glad that we were able to open the first center in Pudukkottai, the birth place of Dr. Muthulakshmi Reddy. It is a fitting tribute to her contribution in the fight against cancer as the founder of Adayar Cancer Institute.You can read about the news coverage of the opening ceremony in Times of India.
