Residents of Region Three came out in their numbers on Friday to access a wide range of health services offered by the Region Three Health and Wellness Club.
The occasion was yet another Health Fair orchestrated by the Club which has as its mission to help improve the health status of people in the Region.
The Fair was held at the Wales Community Centre Ground and people were able to benefit from dental checks, blood pressure and blood sugar tests, Body Mass Index checks, vision tests, Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid (VIA) tests among others.
A doctor was also on hand to appropriately dispense medications.
For the first time the Club was able to garner the support of Sears 20/20 Vision Centre which facilitated the vision testing service.
The Club also gained support from Food for the Poor (Guyana) Inc. and the Ministry of Public Health.
As part of its effort, the Club has the responsibility to ensure that persons are firstly aware of what the term health means.
It also has, as part of its mission, to ensure that people receive correct and adequate information on prevention and management of health conditions.
The Club has also been encouraging people how to take responsibility for their own health and to work in collaboration with the health sector and other Ministries and agencies in the Region.
Established in 2011 as the Region Three Diabetic Association, the members, of the not-for-profit organisation, decided to expand the focus to chronic diseases while at the same time encouraging people in the Region to embrace behavioural changes that can help to improve their health.
