Bringing Healthcare to the Community

SEGi Pharmacy Student Association collaborated with Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences Pharmacy Students Society (CUPSS) and the University of Nottingham Pharmacy Students Society (PharmNOTTS) to organise “Karnival Komuniti Sihat (KASIH) 2016” at the Kampung Batu 13 community hall in Kajang to hold health screenings for 200 villagers. The students conducted blood sugar , cholesterol and blood pressure checks for the villagers. There were also exhibits on dengue vaccines awareness, smoking cessation and maintaining children’s personal hygiene. The Ministry of Health and the Young Pharmacy Chapter stationed several pharmacists at the event to answer any queries the villagers had on health issues. SEGi distributed goody bags to the villagers which contained Vitamin C supplements, sanitising wet wipes, pens and oats.
