Pathcare Nigeria producers of popular medical radio show “Doctors on air” have announced plans for the 2015 edition of the Annual Medical Mission
Pathcare Nigeria (producers of popular medical radio show “Doctors on air”) in collaboration with top Lagos radio stations Classic fm 97.3 and Naija 102.7 fm, have announced plans for the 2015 edition of the Annual Medical Mission - a free Public health care programme for local residents.
The “Doctors on Air Medical Mission” which is in its fourth season, renders free Medical services to no less than 2,000 citizens a day at chosen communities, with the selfless assistance of volunteer Doctors.
Free services usually offered include; Medical counselling and advice, tests on blood pressure, Blood Glucose, cholesterol, breast screening, Kidney tests, Body Mass Index (BMI), blood donations, dental consultation, and eye examination amongst others.
According to Classic fm Programmes Director, Chico Aligwekwe, “Classic fm takes its role in the community very seriously. This opportunity to be of service is something we find very rewarding and we remain committed to the exercise.”
Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, Programmes Director for indigenous radio, Naija fm, also expressed excitement at the oncoming event. “We look forward to this event every year. It is our little way of giving back to the society. We are looking for more avenues to give back.”
The annual CSR which failed to hold last year (2014) owing to the Ebola scare and the attendant need to discourage a huge gathering; is set to take place on the 1 of August, 2015 at the Yaba Local Government office, Yaba, Lagos.
Supporters of the initiative include; PathCare, Bridge Clinic, Mopheth Pharmacy, The Eye doctors, Medplus, Healthplus, Paelon Memorial, Renaissance Medical, Fidson Healthcare, Megacare limited, Skye Dental, Chike Okoli Foundation, New Heights pharmacy, Fan milk, Access Bank, Leadway Assurance, Lagos state Blood donation service, Bernados pharmacy, CDMA LUTH and many more.
