CAPDA welcomes local initiatives.
Earlier this year one of our valued partners, initiated an awareness raising session about the importance of health checks, maintaining medication regimes, and available services. Many had their blood pressure taken during a general screening and learned about the imperative to maintain medication to lower blood pressure and healthy eating to prevent the incidence of strokes.
Seventy-two community members attended this session. Sixty-three people were referred to either medical clinics or rehabilitation services.
