Join the Health Olympics and become involved in health promotion and disease prevention in the community! Manchester's first health promotion society organises and attends events throughout the year, offering health checks and giving health advice by medical students. We are also heavily involved in organising the annual Preston Health Mela, a huge fun health event in the North West. This society is well supported and a really excellent opportunity to improve teamwork, communication and leadership skills.
We screen for cardiovascular disease risk factors such as weight, blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure and promote lifestyle improvements such as quitting smoking, increasing physical activity and losing weight. We are passionate about improving public health and preventing disease and feel this is a unique project of its kind, run by students. Our aims are to improve the health of our local population through screening, identifying risk factors and encouraging lifestyle changes by interacting with the public at our events. Get involved in health promotion, fundraising and teamwork and look out for upcoming training events!
