UNISA offers free health screenings to students

UNISA will be offering free health screenings to its students at the Muckleneuk and Science Campuses in Pretoria at the end of the month.

The University of South Africa (UNISA) will be hosting free health screenings for students on Tuesday, 30 April 2019, at their Muckleneuk and Science Campuses in Pretoria. The month of April is observed as Health Awareness Month across the world, and this year’s theme of World Health Day, celebrated on 7 April 2019, was “Universal health coverage: everyone, everywhere.”

UNISA is living up to the World Health Day theme by offering screenings for blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol and body mass index. The screenings will be held on Tuesday, 30 April 2019 from 09:00 to 14:00. At the Muckleneuk Campus, the screenings will be held on the third floor of the Cas van Vuuren Building, while on the Science Campus the screenings will be on the ground floor of the NB Pityana Building.

During the Health Awareness Month of April, we have already observed World Autism Awareness Day on 2 April, World Health Day on 7 April and World Haemophilia day on 17 April. From 25 to 30 April, we will observe African Vaccination Week, while 25 April will be World Malaria Day.

Students are encouraged to go for the free health screenings and any enquiries can be directed to: Mokgadi Tefo: 012 429 6077, Lebogang Kotsokoane: 012 429 3582 or Keepile Mocumi: 011 670 9268.
