Webinar video: "Cancer in the Fire Services"


The cfbt.pl Foundation recently held a 5 hour seminar in English and Polish about Cancer in the Fire Services. We publish here the list of speakers and topics, with time codes for the recorded video. 

The aim of the conference was to comprehensively discuss the issues of cancer in the fire services: from legal conditions, through threats and prevention, to the health care system and supporting activities.

Please view through our embedded video below, or directly on the cfbt.pl Foundation YouTube page.  

The conference speakers are entities and specialists in many fields, including foreign speakers. 

This was the third Multidisciplinary International Conference on Cancer in the Fire Services, first held in connection to the World Cancer Day.

This time the event was premiered on YouTube on the 4th of APRIL 2023. The webinar video is hosted by Szymot Kokot.

Because the event was aimed at a Polish and an international audience,  the host is speaking in both English and Polish, one after another during the intermissions. Presenters speaking in Polish  have English subtitles embedded into the video.
