​From: THE NATIONAL DIRECTORATE OF THE AUWAL SHANONO NATIONAL MEDICAL STUDENTS’ QUIZ AND ESSAY COMPETITIONS OF THE NIGERIAN MEDICAL STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION (NiMSA)

Greetings great NiMSAites! His Excellency; The NiMSA President, Comr. Williams Nwekpa, has made the academics of Nigerian medical students an apex priority for the 2017 NiMSA administration. 

The aforementioned National Directorate was commissioned for the sole purpose of commandeering the uphill task of supervising/organizing regional quiz and essay competitions and finally organizing and hosting a grand national quiz and essay competition, aimed at provoking the academic tenacity of Nigerian medical students. The directorate was named after NiMSA’s fallen great leader Late Comr. Auwal Shanono (1984 – 2011) in grand honor and immortalization.

We appeal to all NiMSAites to enjoin us in this uncharted territory with both substantial support and compliance as we together promote healthy educative competitions amongst medical students and further progress the interrelationships amongst medical schools.
The directorate will be working affiliatively with all the Regional Coordinators. The constitution of a National Quiz and Essay committee is currently ongoing. Different templates for the various Quiz and Essay competitions will be published periodically. 

Thanks and God bless!

SHORT PRESS RELEASE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA MEDICAL STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION ON WORLD CANCER DAY 

GREATEST NiMSAites!!! 

From the Office of the Public Relations Officer University of Nigeria Medical Student’s Association(UNMSA). 
The events marking the world cancer day celebration on 4th Februray 2017 in Nigeria (Enugu state). 
February 4th, every year is a day mapped out for creating the awareness on cancer and it curability. Down here in Nigeria, it was not different as the Consortium of Titans against Cancer in Enugu amongst whom are the University of Nigeria Medical Student’s Association (UNMSA) an outbranch of NiMSA, Nigerian Medical Association, NMA(Enugu state chapter), Medical Women Association of Nigeria (MWAN), Enugu Branch, Association of Radiologist and Cancer Oncologist of Nigeria (ARCON), Breast Without Spot NGO (BWS), UNTH Cancer Support Group, Association of Physiotherapists in Nigeria, and other health bodies within Enugu state participated fully in this year’s event marking WCD with the theme #We can #I can, #Support through sports social media campaign. The Bike Riders of Enugu also participated in the campaign. 

The program featured a rally/exercise walk within the vicinity the state (going through Okpara square, the Stadium and beyond). The streets were agog with members of the Consortium rocking cardboards with inscription like;

# Cancer is curable, early detection is the secret.

#proper exercise and feeding matters in the fight against carcinogens

#Go for cancer screening at least once every month. 

#Check your breast today for lumps and other cancer related signs

#Be vaccinated against HPV and HBV today. 

Fliers, stickers and posters were displayed. People were encouraged to get regular medical screenings against cancer and to live health lifestyles. The outdoor awareness campaign of Saturday ended with a football match between two groups of the Consortium. It was fun all the way. 

On Sunday, a free medical outreach and screening took place in Ugwuaji (St Michael Catholic church). Many people had preliminary screenings done. Women were shown how to undertake personal Breast examination. Suspicious cases were referred to specialist for more analysis. It was a successful program. 
Lastly, medical students are encouraged to go for regular medical check up.
