We are proud to announce that we had a total of 235 attendees, patients were able to get their necessary health checks completed without no appointment. This saved a total of 494 appointments that would have been made during clinic time.

I hope these events continue. They are invaluable and reassuring. All the advisors were so nice and helpful.
