MEMBERS of the public living around Nausori had an opportunity to undergo various health screenings and check-up during a wellness outreach program that opened at Syria Park in Nausori earlier today.

Organised by the Fiji Nursing Association Rewa branch in conjunction with Commissioner Central, the program served as an outreach to the general public on the importance of wellness – keeping fit and eating healthy – and fighting against non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

Nausori Health Centre’s Dr Fane Rabici said people were making choices that were detrimental to their health over the natural healthy foods available around them.

She said this was why such platforms were useful for educating the public on the issue of NCDs.
