184 traders benefit from Taiwo Afolabi free dental outreach at Ibadan Market



A total of 184 traders (men and
women) have enjoyed free dental and medical care at the Taiwo Afolabi Free
Rural Dental Outreach, which was held recently at the popular Dugbe Market in
Ibadan.


The rural community health outreach,
which is organised by the University Of Ibadan Association Of Dental Students,
is a free medical mission targeted at rural communities in Oyo Stat and is
sponsored by SIFAX Group.

Some of the services the beneficiaries enjoyed
were body mass index (BMI) measurement, blood pressure test, random blood
glucose measurement, blood pressure measurement, dental clerking, examination
and referrals, extractions and scaling and polishing.

Medical personnel deployed for the event
included doctors, medical and dental students from the University College
Hospital, Ibadan. There was also a question and answer session which was meant
to educate the beneficiaries on how to improve their oral health.

Mr. Olumuyiwa Akande, Corporate
Affairs Manager, SIFAX Group, said the sponsorship of the programme was part of
the humanitarian gestures of the company, adding that SIFAX Group believes that
healthy citizens translate to a healthy nation.

Ms. Urenna Emenyonu, President, University of
Ibadan Dental Students Association, said the aim of the outreach was to create
an oral health awareness and promotion of good oral health hygiene in the
society.

She noted that SIFAX Group’s support for the
outreach has helped to not only reach out to many rural persons but also
equipped the students with adequate field knowledge needed for them to excel in
dentistry.

She enjoined other corporate organizations to emulate the
company by partnering with the student body to take the rural health mission to
other communities.
