More than 2,000 residents of Bariga community in Lagos have been touched by one of the many corporate social responsibility activities of healthcare services provider, SYNLAB Nigeria.
The free medical service event put together by Doctors-on-Air in partnership with Classic FM and Naija FM is part of activities the company has designed to give back to society, SYNLAB said in a statement.
The event saw SYNLAB and its partners provide a wide range of health care services such as dental care, eye screening, skin care, blood pressure checks, breast and cervical cancer screening, hepatitis screening, blood sugar checks, cardiology services, among others free to Bariga residents in Lagos.
Speaking on the exercise, Anchor of Doctors on Air programme, Managing Director, SYNLAB, Dr. Pamela Jackson-Ajayi said that the free healthcare mission was for a humanitarian purpose. “On our programme, we preach prevention and early detection, propagating that people should go for screening, but there are some people who cannot afford it. We are conscious of this fact.”
