Mopani celebrates National Heart Awareness Month

Health screenings can even be life saving! Mopani recently offered free blood pressure and glucose testing in celebration of National Heart Awareness Month.

In celebration of National Heart Awareness Month Mopani Pharmacy in partnership with Pharma Dynamics and Bayer offered free blood pressure and glucose testing on 28 and 29 September outside their Crossing Centre store.

According to Sr Jane Mongwe, department head of clinic services at Mopani, health screenings are important because they can warn against possible health problems like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. Detecting these diseases at an early stage can even be life saving since the patient is then aware of it and can then make the necessary lifestyle changes to manage the disease properly.

Mopani Pharmacy’s Wellness Clinics offer a full range of basic health screening tests including blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and Body Mass Index. Visit them at our Crossing Centre, I’Langa Mall and White River Square stores or phone (013) 755 5500 for more information.
