The Association of Nigeria Health Journalists (ANHEJ), in partnership with a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), Excellent Leadership For Sustainable Development and Good Governance, has concluded plans to hold a medical outreach for journalists in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

In a press release by the association president, Nigerian Health Journalists, Hassan Zaggi, said the medical outreach is aimed at providing journalists who due to the nature of their work do not have time to go to the hospital regularly for routine checks, especially the condition of their eyes.

“Concerned by the burden of work on journalists, with immense pressure on their eyes through the use of laptops, IPhones, desktops and other electronic gadgets, the medical outreach is a timely opportunity  to conduct  vital checks and eyes screening.”

Mr Zaggi noted that the medical outreach which will be  comprehensive, will see our partner, Excellent Leadership For Sustainable Development And Good Governance, bringing a consortium of health experts, who are specialists in different fields.

“The outreach will be conducted from 10am to 6pm on Thursday, September 8, 2022, at Radio House, Abuja, the Nigeria Union of Journalist (NUJ) and Federal Radio corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Chapel are  also part of the collaboration.”

He advised Journalists in the FCT to take advantage of this opportunity and come out to check their vital signs and most especially, the condition of their eyes which is the gateway to their body.

“I therefore advise journalists to take responsibility of their health by always creating time for regular routine check up.”
