A team of medical service providers from Pantai Hospital Ipoh recently provided free health screenings at the Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health’s halfway home in Batu Lapan, Ulu Kinta, Perak.
The session began with light refreshments followed by bone density screening, body mass index measurements and blood pressure check-ups. There was a diet counselling booth where residents and staff were given advice on healthy eating habits. The Pantai Hospital team was led by Harith Idris with the support of CIMB Ipoh Branch headed by its manager, Teoh Chen Gaik. A total of 50 residents and 20 staff participated in the programme.
Vice President of the Perak Society for the Promotion of Mental Health, S. Sundralingam, thanked both Teoh and Harith for their assistance which benefited the residents of the halfway home.
