As part of activities to promote healthy living among Nigerians, The Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) Lagos Region, on Thursday, organised free medical screening and provided drugs to participants at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair, which runs from 2 to 11 November, 2018, at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, Nigeria.
The medical screening, which was conducted by FGBMFI in collaboration with LiveWell Initiative LWI, had a good turnout of participants who came to check their stress level, blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI) Hepatitis B status, blood sugar level, and collected drugs based on any ailment detected from screening results.
Addressing participants earlier, Pharm. (Mrs) Bisi Bright, chief executive officer, LWI, spoke on the importance of regular physical exercise to the body, though they may not find it easy initially, but she noted that the benefits far outweigh any pain that may be attributed to it.
Pharm. Bright, who was represented by Mr Emmanuel Ntinu, also urged the participants to always have their blood pressure checked periodically, in order to avert cardiovascular diseases, which are very deadly.
The Coordinator, Lagos Region FGBMFI for the Lagos International Trade Fair, Sir Ifeanyi Atueyi, explained the goal of the outreach, which was to positively affect the total being of participants at the International Trade Fair.
He said the outreach, was jointly organised by Lagos districts 3, 4, 6, and 7, and it has witnessed a huge success since the beginning.
