PathCare, Cycling club promote ‘Know Your Number’ health initiative
Pathology services provider, PathCare, has collaborated with the Cycology Cycling Club to promote a health awareness drive to encourage people to be more health conscious through a special campaign tagged ‘KNOW YOUR NUMBERS’.
This was the crux of a 45-kilometre health ride that took off at the Astro Turf, Ikoyi traversing the Third Mainland bridge to Oworonshoki , Yaba, Alagomeji, Adekunle and back through CMS.
On the day, there were free health screenings, a health talk and distribution of specially tagged health cards.
Head of Client Services at PathCare, Martha Maha, explained that the campaign provides an exceptional opportunity for people to obtain credible health information from the experts.
“We are using the campaign to encourage people all over Nigeria to collect this special ‘KNOW YOUR NUMBERS’ health card as it showcases all the essential health numbers everyone should know”, she said.
Frank Ozoma, Captain of the Cycology Cycling Club, on his part disclosed that the “Cycology was established to promote cycling as a lifestyle and create awareness about social issues. We are extremely concerned about health and fitness and we are happy to partner with PathCare on this laudable health initiative. But more important than listening is actually taking action. All Cycology members have been encouraged to participate and they have done so. People need to take action to prevent illness.”
The special “Know your numbers” developed by PathCare is available free of charge at all PathCare Clinical Laboratories and other participating outlets across the nation. The card has a unique Blood Pressure Chart which enables individuals to understand the difference between normal, pre-hypertensive and hypertensive levels, which helps in the management of blood pressure. The card also captures important numbers on Blood Sugar and cholesterol among others.
