Millennium Fellowship Project: Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
This project involved me giving health talks to the members of staff of Babcock University and Babcock University Staff School. The health talks discussed measures that dould be taken to prevent chronic and infectious diseases in our daily lives, laying emphasis on hygiene, the importance of getting immunized and the need for better lifestyle choices.
The project was finished off with a health check-up program where the body mass index, blood pressure and random blood sugar of the participants were checked and the participants were counselled based on the results from these parameters.
The health check-up program was done in collaboration with The Mama Villa project, the project of Omololu Adebanjo, the Campus Director. The health check-up program was made possible with the assistance of students from the following departments: Public and Allied Health, Nursing Sciences, Nutrition and Dietetics and Medicine and Surgery.
