As part of the Pink October activities, a complimentary screening for eligible women will be held at the InterContinental – The City’s Event Centre entrance on October 8 and 30 for both residents and visitors. A representative from the Breast and Bowel Cancer Screening Program, “Screen For Life,” will also be present at the Lobby Lounge on October 8 to help answer any questions guests may have about the program and the screening services it provides.
