Lakeshore Cancer Center held a health fair on Saturday, March 3rd 2018 at Muri Okunola Park from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.
This was to commemorate the World Cancer Day which had been marked worldwide on the 4th of February 2018. We traditionally mark this day in some way since the inception of the clinic in 2014. However this year 2018, we decided to expand by including other health providers in view of the risk factors of cancer and non-communicable diseases in general, Thus providing a thorough and holistic health check of interest to all attendees.
The result was a magnificent show of collaboration amongst health providers giving Free health services and information to attendees. These included cancer, general practice with Biometrics, Blood tests, ECG heart monitoring, Eye, Dental, Surgical, Orthopaedic, Plastics, Mental health, Sleep, Pranic healing, Yoga and Aerobics.
We also had great sponsors and vendors. They include Nestle Plc, Efferent cares, Kidney Solutions, Film House Cinemas, Dennis Ashley Clinic, Transquil & Quest, Aquadana, Sleep Inc, Shoprite, Eye Foundation Hospital, Healthline ltd, The Healthzone, Novaroma Bakery, Bridge Clinic, Path care, Eye-Q, Manola Pharm, Euracare Hospital, Afrinvest, Center for Advanced Specialty Surgery, BellaNaija, Classic Fm, Silverbird TV, Optimal Cancer care, Bids & Fit Company, OVH Energy etc
Veteran actress Ajoke Silva was an amazing voice and advocate for the fair. The event had over 700 attendees patronizing respective health care providers of interest to them and other vendors.
Lakeshore will continue its mission in Cancer and General health education and awareness. It is our hope that we can make this an annual event with more traction from establishments and Health providers.
This Health Fair will be a yearly event.
