The UM Wellness Road Show

The UM Wellness Roadshow was conducted from 7.30 am to 12.00noon in DP2 and MP3 in Block D, Perdanasiswa within the UM campus on 7 & 8 January 2009.  The objectives were to provide opportunities for UM staff who had undergone the health screening to consult the experts on their screening results and monitor some of their health indicators such as weight, blood pressure and blood glucose.  The Wellness Roadshow also provided physical activity and fitness assessment, dietary assessment, body fat monitoring etc.  A series of talks on screening and health, diet and cholesterol, stress management and smoking cessation were also conducted concurrently.  The staff that missed the first screening in July-August 2008 were also given the chance to have their health checks. 

This event was run by the staff and post-graduate students of the Department of Social & Preventive Medicine.  A few medical students also volunteered to help at this event. Other than the above, the Sports Medicine Unit from the Allied Health Department, Faculty of Medicine, UM and the Kinsmedic company also participated in this event.
