The Adabraka graphic clinic
Everything is set for this year’s Graphic Clinic medical screening which is due to take place tomorrow at Adabraka in Accra[September 10, 2022].
The exercise, led by the Renovated Graphic Clinic and other partners, is a corporate social responsibility (CSR) undertaking by Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL) and its partners in the surrounding community.
The exercise is on the theme: “Your health is our concern”.
This year, the partners – Medgraph Compound Pharmacy and Laboratory, Gokals Healthy Optionz, Serepa Dental Clinic and Synlab Ghana – are expected to screen over 600 people for diabetes, blood pressure, anemia, malaria, as well as eye disease, oral. .
Graphic Clinic Resident Physician Dr. Jacqui Barnes, who will lead the team, said, “We are ready and all set for another important day for the clinic and our community. This year, the objective, in addition to regular services, will be to encourage people to seek preventive care by going to regular check-ups, instead of waiting to show up with a situation, often too late to intervene.
Serepa Dental Clinic specialist dentist Dr. Kwame Frimpong Boateng said the oral problems are not limited to tooth decay but include mouth and jaw cancers among others.
Regular check-ups done at least once a year or every six months, he advised, could prevent such oral problems.
Synlab Ghana Marketing and Sales Manager Abigail Yeboah Owiredu said the company is delighted to partner with GCGL to raise awareness about Hepatitis B.
She said that due to the contagious nature of Hepatitis B, it has become very common in recent times, adding: “Unfortunately people still have little knowledge about their status.”
“So we’re going to screen people to know their status and offer advice. Also, I want people to know that early detection saves lives, so they should have at least a routine checkup of their liver, urine, blood, and other organs to know their status,” Ms. Owiredu added.
