Health Screening for BBE Senior - 16 December 2012 Sunday

The participants started to stream into Bukit Batok East Hall 1 early Sunday morning at 8am for their health screening.
Although it was before the stipulated time, our health screening provider was able to start the screening early which meant a lot to our participants who have been fasting the day before.

Through health screenings, our seniors have a better knowledge of their health condition and can have them treated at an earlier stage if they are at risk, increasing their chances of recovery.

The health screening comprises measurement of body mass index ( BMI ), blood pressure (BP), Osteoporosis self assessment, fasting venous blood glucose and tests for Lipid Disorders.

After the screening, seniors were treated to a healthy refreshment to break the fast.

The programme follows up with a detailed individual health report with recommendation of GP for seniors whose conditions put them at risk. At the same time, the health screening aims to help those without risk conditions to maintain their good health.

This event is organised by Bukit Batok East Active Ageing Committee with full support from the GROs.
