3rd Annual Professional Services Day
The T&T Group of Professional Associations (TTGPA) held our 3rd Annual Professional Services Day, with a focus on Health, Wellness and Professional Services, on Saturday 5th April 2014, at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, Sport and Physical Education Centre from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
TTGPA is no stranger to giving back to communities by encouraging our members to offer free services to communities. We have been proud to give back to the Woodbrook and Diego Martin communities over the last two years, and this year, we moved east, welcoming residents of the Tunapuna, St. Augustine and environs to take advantage of the full services being offered throughout the day.
TTGPA thanks the North Central Regional Health Authority, the Tunapuna/ Piarco Regional Corporation as well as the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus for partnering with us to deliver quality service in one day, in one place.
Patrons visited our medical clinic which provided basic screening services – blood sugar testing, cholesterol testing, immunizations, dietary advice and more. The clinic further offered blood PSA for cancer of prostate and the rapid test for HIV. Immunizations offered were for yellow fever, tetanus toxoid plus diphtheria tetanus, hepatitis B, polio for kids under 15, PAP smears, mammograms, prostate exams.
Residents also benefited when Medical Doctors and Interns from UWI Faculty of Medical Sciences were available for individual treatments after their screenings. Everyone received proper assessments, prescriptions and referrals being done on their behalf. Career Guidance and Professional Advisory Services from our TTGPA Members, as well as University Faculty in the areas of Advertising, Real Estate, Engineering, Surveying, Psychology, Safety, System Auditing and Law were also available to those with questions and concerns.
