Cleaner Greener & Healthier Penang – A Community Health Program

In conjunction with the Penang State Government’s “Cleaner Greener Penang” campaign which among others seeks to transform our beautiful state into a sustainable city of the future, my office, in collaboration with YB Chong Eng’s service centre, will be organizing a series of community health check programs in Bukit Mertajam with local Jawatankuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Komuniti/Kampung (JKKK – Community/Village Development and Security Committee) and healthcare community such as the Malaysian Nurses Association (Penang’s chapter) and the Penang Family Health Development Association (PFHDA).

The series of programs will be titled “Cleaner Greener and Healthier Penang” and aims to instill awareness among local residents about healthcare, environmental protection and quality living. There will be free health screening at the program, including blood glucose test, blood pressure check, BMI, breast self-examination (for women) as well as collection of old papers/newspaper for recycling by the JKKK. The first three programs will be as follow:
