Dzolo Gbogame (V/R),
Sept. 28, GNA – The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has screened more than 1000
people in the Ho West District of the Volta Region to mark its 60th
Anniversary.

The beneficiaries
included the aged, many of whom were transported from neighbouring farming
communities to the District capital for the medical screening.

As early as 0700
hours, the venue for the exercise was flooded by the locals, some of who tested
positive to malaria, hypertension, anaemia and diabetes.

Dr Anthony Ashinyo,
the Volta Divisional Chairman of GMA, attributed the high patronage to the
absence of a hospital in the District. 

Dr Frank Ankobea, the
National President of the Association, expressed worry about the high rate of
malaria among the children and advised parents to ensure they slept under
treated mosquito nets.

He advised the
beneficiaries to eat more vegetables and fruits and exercise regularly to stay
healthy.

The Anniversary would
be climaxed with a general conference in Koforidua.

GNA
