As part of their activities for the 2019 Engineering week, the spouses Forum Eket Branch organized a free medical check for all the members of the Branch. The event held on Saturday, 15th June 2019 in the premises of Pegasus school, Eket and took place concurrently as the sporting activities on the flag-off day of the Engineering week.
The medical check, which was a follow-up to the health seminar on “ Healthy living and Lifestyle choices”, was handled by Dr. Edidiong Frank and his team.
The checks conducted were mainly regular checks like determination of Body Mass Index (B.M.I) using the measured body weight and height, Blood pressure check, Random blood sugar test, and HIV test. Prostate tests were also conducted on adults over the age of 40 as that is the minimum age for such tests.
The participants also had the opportunity to consult the Doctor for medical advice on any other medical and health challenges they were faced with.
The branch member that got checked up all got their results at the end of the event before heading home and were full of praise for the organizers, as that was the first of its kind since inception.
