Men’s Health Fair slated for Sunday February 27, 2022

Written by on February 24, 2022

Prostate Cancer is the leading cancer diagnosed in men in the Caribbean region and around the world. It is followed by lung cancer, colorectal cancer and – among black men – cancer of the
mouth and throat.

The war on cancer can only be won through the introduction of a multi-pronged approach which includes primary prevention, early detection, management and treatment of patients with cancer.
To aid in these efforts, the Ministry of Health, Wellness and Elderly affairs in collaboration with the Ministry of Equity, Social Justice and Empowerment will host a Men’s Health Fair on Sunday February 27, 2022 at the Belle Vue Wellness Centre and the Belle Vue Human Resource Development Centre from 10am to 5pm.

The services which will be offered on that day include:
1. Blood pressure testing, blood sugar testing and weight assessments.
2. Oral health education.
3. Financial consultation and health education with Mr. Lucius Ellevique.
4. Mental health assessments, counseling and health education.
5. Pharmacy consultations.
6. Prostate and testicular exams with Dr. Christy Daniel.
7. Medical consultation with Dr. Cyrus Daniel and Dr. Mervin Mark.
8. Prostatic Surface Antigen testing for men who qualify.
9. COVID-19 Vaccinations.
10. Hearing Health.
11. Testing for sexually transmitted diseases.

Residents of Belle Vue and all other surrounding communities are urged to attend the men’s health fair. There will also be prizes to be won and special presentations of gifts.
