Centre for Plant Medicine Research (CPMR) has organised a free health screening exercise for the residents of Mampong Akuapem.

The exercise was aimed at improving the health conditions of the people to remain productive and enhance the development of the area and Ghana as a whole.

"The people cannot help accelerating the growth of the area if their health conditions are not good, and health is wealth, adding that quality health was essential for the progress of the community," the Director of CPMR Dr. Ronald Yeboah stated.

He said most people were suffering from hidden sickness because they were unconcerned about their health conditions, urging the people to take their health issues seriously.

Dr Ronald Yeboah called on the people, especially the youth, to adopt a healthy lifestyle and avoid acts that had the tendency to jeopardise their health. "We want herbal medicine to be their first medicine of choice whenever they are sick," he added.

The Acting Public Relation Officer (PRO) for CPMR, Madam Eunice Ama Opong assured of making the exercise an annual event to reach out to more residents in the area.

About 150 to 200 people were screened for hypertension, diabetes, malaria, tuberculosis, and sugar levels with hypertension the most prevalent case.

They were also taken through counseling on how to live a healthy lifestyle and eat a balanced nutritional diet to boost their immune system which he recommends Immunim and Ampoforte for them as an herbal immune booster.

Some beneficiaries who spoke to the media commended the CPMR for the initiative and promise to keep the advice to maintain a healthy diet.
