Medical Association Organizes Health Programmes For Legislators In Osun

MEDICALA four-day health programme with a free medical mission to strengthen the relationship between the State of Osun Branch of the Nigeria Medical Association and the state House of Assembly commenced yesterday in Osogbo with a charge from the medical experts that Nigerians should go for a comprehensive medical check-up at least once a year to know their state of health.

The chairman, planning committee of the programme tagged “2013 physicians’ week and 28th CME/CPD lecture series, Dr. A Omonisi who gave the charge at the NMA House, Osogbo, stated that the progamme was designed to justify one of their sub-themes through promotion of legislation for regular health check-up in the country.
“We implore every one of us to relax and socialize with one another. Please take your time to check your own health status; Physician, heal thy self says the Holy Book. It’s recommended that we all go for a comprehensive medical checkup at least one in a year.”
Dr. Omonisi who stressed also that their representatives will be meeting with the State of Osun House of Assembly Committee on Health regularly on this matter, said this would be so to reflect on their calling as Physicians saying “whether you are Surgeons, Pathologists or Medical Officers, we are all primarily a Physician and the Physicians oath summaries the mandate of a Physician.”
“This main theme of this year’s programme is Federalism and Nigeria’s Healthcare System- an Appraisal of the Primary and Secondary Healthcare Systems. You will all agree with me that these segments of Healthcare system have been neglected for decades but ironically manage vast majority of all patients in the country.”
“In his own speech, the NMA Chairman in the state, Dr.A. Onipede said ”Our focus is on how to ’Demystify Sudden death in Nigeria—through a preventive approach by developing legislation for regular health check-up in Nigeria.’
