Women’s health screening such as Pap smear and breast self-examination was also made available with the support from the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and LPPKN. Men’s health through the form of a questionnaire survey was also carried out by the Department of Surgery.
The program started with a morning aerobic exercise leading by the instructors from the UM Sports Centre and followed with an opening speech by Profesor Dato’ Dr Mohd Amin Jalaludin, Deputy Vice-Chancellor.
