Doctors-on Air in partnership with Classic FM and Naija FM recently offered Bariga Residents free medical care as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) under the auspices of SYNLAB Nigeria.
The event saw more than 2,000 residents received wide range of healthcare 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 residents.
SYNLAB, formerly known as PathCare, is a Healthcare Service Provider which has exhibited
penchant for high quality service delivery and commitment to the communities where it operates.
Speaking on the programme, Managing Director, SYNLAB and Host Dr-on-Air, Dr. Pamela Jackson-Ajayi said that the free healthcare mission was mainly for a humanitarian purpose.
According to her,
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
Appreciating the gesture from SYNLAB, Chairman Bariga Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Hon. Kolade Alabi said the people and their representatives are indeed impressed with the opportunity afforded to benefit from the medical outreach.
On the large turnout of residents, Alabi noted “It shows that the people take their health seriously.”
A similar event was carried out at Ilupeju and at the Women in Business’s 17th Annual
Conference where over 1,500 business women were given vouchers at a discounted price for general wellness check.
