Both the organisation had set up a booth right in the middle of Besut in the morning market. The team had been there since 8am and this community work carried out till noon. The health screening and promotion is really a good community service done as the team could see many peoples of various background pouring in to have a basic health screening and consultation advice by Medical Specialist. Amongst the service done was:
1) Registration of interested individuals
2) Basic interviewing and history taking
3) Weight measurement
4) Blood pressure measurement
5) Glucose measurement
6) Consultation by Medical Specialist
7) Health promotion
Students had played an important role in this program as they were promoting healthy lifestyle and also LUC in general for the student intakes. The Marketing team was also there to support this with its brochure and flyers of the LUC programs available.
In the end of the health screening program, more then 90 individuals had participated in this health screening and this is the first time both the organisation are doing this humanitarian work. There will surely be more participants in the near future as both the organisation have agreed to do this activity again and on a regular basis.
On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to thank all those individual involve in this program as well and we would also like to extend this invitation to all LUC members to participate in this event in the near future.
To end this write up…I remember once our beloved CEO sending a message to staff… “If you walk alone, you will travel a distance. If we walk together, we will travel even further”…and to greater heights and achievement.
