In spite of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s one-day working visit to Lagos State recently, which led to traffic diversion on major roads both on the Mainland and Island part of the state, the eighth edition of the carnival-like Grand Health Bazaar (GHB) 2019, a 3-day cross-cutting multi-sectoral health exposition, organised by Livewell Initiative (LWI) met its expectations, as people from various segments of the society thronged the Havilah Event Centre, Victoria Island, venue of this year event.
The healthcare outreach, which was the eighth in the series was held from 24 to 26 April 2019 and had in attendance, hundreds of participants including several prominent companies, conglomerates and over fifty Livewell Initiative officials and medical personnel.
The Grand Health Bazaar 2019, according to the convener and Chief Executive Officer, Livewell Initiative (LWI), Pharm. Bisi Bright, was an event organised and designed to promote commerce and industry in different segments of the health sector, as well as to bring together corporates and individuals in a multi-mixed setting, under the fulcrum of healthcare.
She rightly stated that the theme: “Sustainable Development Goals as a Catalyst for Enhanced Corporate Sustainability,” had succeeded in bringing high-profile keynote speakers from different organisations and they were able to enlighten and update attendees on new innovations in their various fields.
