The Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) Clinic has organised a day’s seminar on some important health topics for staff of the University as a precursor to a general staff medical examination scheduled for November 2023.
As part of efforts to ensure the good health of staff, the Management of AAMUSTED via the University Clinic organises annual medical examinations for staff to enhance their health status. This year, the medical examination has been expanded to cover prostate disease and cervical cancer.
The University Clinic, therefore, organised the health seminar on Prostate Disease, Cervical Cancer, Telemedicine, and Guidelines for Staff Healthcare and Medical Claims on September 15, 2023, to prepare the staff for a successful medical examination.
The Registrar, Mr. Augustus Kwaw Brew, opened the seminar with a call on staff to treat issues relating to their health very seriously since good health was crucial for productivity.
He assured the staff that the Management of AAMUSTED would continue prioritising their health. He, thus, urged them to fully participate in the seminar and avail themselves for the medical examinations in November.
The Medical Officer at the AAMUSTED Clinic, Dr. George W. B. Bonsu, appealed for cooperation from staff as the Clinic enforces measures to improve its operations for the good of the staff.
The speakers at the seminar were Dr. Samuel Yorke, Deputy Medical Officer and Resident Paediatrician at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH); Dr. Emmanuel Opoku-Acheampong, Specialist Obstetrician Gynaecologist at the Kwadaso SDA Hospital; and Dr. George Adom Asafu Adjaye Frimpong, Head of Department of Radiology, School of Medicine and Dentistry, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
