During their visits to shopping centres around both Torrevieja and the Orihuela Costa, nursing staff from the Torrevieja health department have given helpful advice to more than 12,000 people.
The travelling health awareness campaign offered information on a wide range of subjects, spanning from topics such as the prevention of melanoma, avoiding heat stroke, healthy eating and natural childbirth.
Under the campaign banner “Un verano a tu salud”, the visitors were given fresh fruit, played games and received healthy tips in a productive and fun manner, which the department of health now hope to continue to provide all year round.
Future tours will deal with specific groups and specific medical conditions, visiting schools and social groups, looking at subjects like osteoporosis and pelvic floor workshops, amongst others, all with the aim to encourage the age old mantra that “prevention is better than cure”.
More details can be obtained through their website, www.torrevieja-salud.com, and then clicking on “Agenda”, although the next tours are still being put together, so make sure you bookmark the website and keep checking back.
