MESA urges men to get checks
IN THE WAKE of a number of recently publicised sudden deaths that have been linked to chronic non-communicable diseases, the Men’s Educational Support Association (MESA) yesterday sought to galvanise its members to take better care of themselves.
The organisation held a health seminar at the Merryhill, Welches, St Michael headquarters of the Barbados Union of Teachers which allowed men to get their blood pressure readings and their blood sugar levels taken.
Representatives from the Barbados Cancer Society, the Diabetes Association of Barbados and the Barbados Fire Service gave the men advice to go along with the information they received on the importance of exercise and chronic non-communicable diseases.
Chairman of MESA, Anthony Walrond, said the seminar was the brainchild of MESA’s Education and Safety Committee. (HLE)
