World No Tobacco Day Celebrations 2018

RSCI & UCD Malaysia Campus (formerly Penang Medical College) and Cochrane Malaysia actively participated in the Penang State World No Tobacco Day celebration at the Youth Park on the 24th of June 2018. Our booth aimed to spread awareness about evidence-based ways to quit smoking.

It was an opportunity to introduce the public to Cochrane.

The event was officiated by Dr Afif Bahardin, the Penang State Executive Councillor for agriculture, agro-based industries, rural development and health.

The VIPS were given Cochrane Malaysia souvenirs


We took this opportunity to tell visitors that Penang Medical College has been awarded Foreign Branch University status.
