Health Symposium information
By Arlette Paul
We would like to reach as many people as possible and
the most important part of the symposium is that we need the help of some Doctors and Nurse Practitioners
who would be willing to give some clinic time to benefit the community. This symposium will be in 2 parts. The
first part is to give information to the community on various health issues as well as conduct various tests. The second
part will be to discuss lab test results that will be discussed with the patients and
treatment, teaching and
counselling can be delivered to the patients.
We would also like to advertise the fair/symposium
one month in advance so we can get a good turn out.
The focus of the health fair will be on the following, as it relates
to our community and the
neighboring villages. Screening and teaching the community about health issues like:
Sickle Cell Disease(SCD)
