IN the interests of promoting a healthy lifestyle, a free public medical clinic was conducted in the heart of Labasa Town on Saturday.
Organised by the Lions Club of Labasa, the ATH Vodafone Fiji Foundation, World of Difference and Action for the Children and the Aged (ACATA) Trust, the free clinic saw more than 200 people visit the booth.
ACATA executive Rosan Lal said the screening was part of their focus to inform people of the importance of living a healthy life style.
"To have a healthy lifestyle is totally up to the person and it is their responsibility to live a healthy life. All we can do is advise them on how to live and eat healthy food and through these free medical clinics, people are aware of their health conditions," Mr Lal said.
He said a lot of hypertension and diabetes cases were recorded at the free public health clinic booth.
"We also have members of the Lions Club who are doctors and are present at the booth so they advise the people on what to do and what kinds of food to eat," Mr Lal said.
