Staff and management of A1 Radio, a subsidiary of Agreed Best Communications Limited have been screened as part of the activities marking the celebration of Williman Nlanjebor Jalulah’s birthday. Mr. Jalulah is the General Manager of A1 Radio.
Speaking to the news team, Mr Jalulah explained that “I’m a health-conscious person and as a result, I undergo routine checkups at least, twice every year. I don’t do this alone, I do it with my wife and children. One of such key routine checkups is eye screening. I understand most of the visual impairments people get don’t give symptoms or signs before the worse happens so I make sure every year, my family and I undergo screening to know the status of our sights.”
He continued to say that “I know some of my colleague media practitioners don’t find time to do these very important exercises unless they experience severe pains or discomfort.
And so when my birthday was approaching, I kept asking myself what I could do for my colleagues at the office. Fortunately, I met a very good friend and university mate, Mr Moro, who is a senior Ophthalmic nurse at the Regional Hospital and in our chat, the issue of eye screening came up and that was how we settled on having it done on my birthday. I’m so grateful to him that this exercise has been carried out as planned.”
Excited about the initial idea of just an eye screening, the staff asked for an expanded screening service.
“After I announced on our staff WhatsApp platform about this exercise, one of us who is also a nurse, Jonathan Bugbilla alias Ital, contacted me and suggested if I could add Ear, Nose and Throat screening. I was happy about that also and so I asked him to arrange a specialist for me and he did and he also came and screened us,” he said.
Mr. Jalulah expressed his thoughts on making the screening exercise an annual one.
“Aside staff, clients or visitors who have been to A1 Radio today, took advantage of the exercise and went through the screening. I will really love to make this an annual affair.
Meanwhile, I will like to encourage my colleagues in the inky fraternity to make time for their health by going for regular checkups in accredited health facilities,” he said.
Meanwhile, speaking to A1 News, an Ophthalmic nurse at the Fumbisi Health Centre in the Upper East Region and former Head of the Eye Unit at the Upper East Regional Hospital, Dr. Issaka Moro Sanda has advised the public to pay more attention to their eyes.
He explained that the public can do this by visiting the health centre at least once a year to run comprehensive tests on their eyes.
