Community Outreach Programme – Passport to Better Health & SEDAP [2021]

Updated On Jan 12, 2022

On the 3rd and 4th of April, DS launched Passport to Better Health and SEDAP (Special Education in  Diabetes & Awareness Programme). While Passport to Better Heath was the overarching theme to invest in early detection screening and healthy lifestyle;  SEDAP was the culturally appropriate programme targeting the Muslim community- specifically providing fasting guidelines for diabetics during Ramadan. We had the privilege to have Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Second Minister for Health and Mdm Rahayu Mahzam, Parliamentary Secretary, as our Guest-of-Honour and Special Speaker, respectively. The programme schedule  involved many talks run by sponsors and our partners. Health screening was  also conducted over this weekend. Our health screening partners included Singapore Optometric Association (SOA), SEWA Healthcare, Lions Prostheses Centre and EyRIS. DS screened 537 people and  300 underwent eye screening and visual acuity test with 94 being issued with  reading glasses. We had also taken this opportunity to sign a MOA with AstraZeneca on a new initiative ‘Beyond Sugar’.
