An education programme around cancer awareness should be set up for second and third level students in Kerry.
That’s according to Fianna Fáil councillor John Francis Flynn.
Speaking at the monthly meeting of Kerry County Council, he said young people can often take their health for granted, but cancer affects all ages.
Cllr Flynn said the HSE should establish this type of a programme, which could educate students on what symptoms they should look out for and where they can go for help, if needed.
The Kerry Cancer Support Group are resumed their awareness programme since COVID-19 restrictions were eased and have returned to schools throughout the county to educate students on the issue.
