The Founder of Alphacares Health Foundation, Dr Hamzat Zaheed, who is currently going through NYSC orientation at the camp has organized the screening for staff members after the live broadcast on the 14th November to sensitize people about the diabetes mellitus in commemoration of World Diabetes Day 2019.??
The same exercise was held in Lagos State among the staff of Senior High School Ikeja where 50 of them were screened for Diabetes Mellitus.
He pointed out that the staff members were the target because both in the school and at the camp, because they have been acting as parents and guidance to the children under their care and it is sometimes worrisome that in dedicating their time to take care of others’ children they have little or no time to check on their state of health, hence the need to bring the awareness and screening to their various places of work.
He further reiterated that the screening would help them know the state of their health and with Doctors’ advice and counselling, they would be able to live a better life devoid of risk of diabetes, hypertension and obesity.
