DUSAF in collaboration with SCAT and some of our volunteers conducted free health screening for the people of Luom community in the Osudoku traditional area, Eastern Region.
The bus took off on Friday at the Osu Salem secondary school exactly 6pm and arrived at our destination around 9:20pm. It was an interesting trip, good interactions between our volunteers and other organization who joined us on the bus.
The next day which was the main program (21st October) started exactly 8am. This time we had the old aged and middle aged partaking in the screening of which children were few.
We started off by taking their details, moved on to check their BP, proceeded to check for malaria. After they moved on to get their their blood glucose levels checked and then went for consultation with the doctors. Some were given drugs because they were reactive to malaria. Breast screening was done as well for the women.
During the exercise, the chief of the community and the assembly man came through to see to how things were carried out. We screened about 200 people in total. The program came to an end at 2:00pm.
It was an educative, insightful and fun experience. We would to thank DUSAF for bringing us on board for this exercise and our volunteers that were present at the exercise.
