Each month pre-med or medical student team leadersof Models of Diseases create brochures and lead an awareness campaign for one disease. We end the month of October with Breast cancer awareness campaign and the beautiful pink rose as a symbol of women beauty and hope after having the  brain tumour awareness month and its hope flower-the almond blossoms. We ended the month of September with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and the lotus flower. Earlier in September we had Alzheimer’s awareness month with its delicate and fragile flower Forget-Me-Not. In August we acknowledge Skin cancer with sunflower as symbol. If you want to support our campaign forward the brochure to friends and family, take pictures of lotus flowers and share them and the brochure with a few words about Models of Diseases Flower for Diseases project. Thank you! During the 2010 International Conference Models of Human Diseases we had ALS awareness and cornflower as symbol and we gave away seeds for participants to plant in their garden and take pictures.
