The ‘Carpa de la Salud’ (Health Tent) sets up in Albox

The ‘Carpa de la Salud’ (Health Tent) was set up this Tuesday in the town of Albox. The Official College of Pharmacists of Almeria together with the Albox Town Council, in collaboration with Laboratorio Sandoz, and the work of pharmacists from the north of the province, have raised awareness of healthy habits and carried out numerous measurements on the health of citizens.

The Delegate for Health, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, the Mayoress of Albox, María del Mar Alfonso, the Councillor for Health, Eva Vanesa Águila, the Member of the College of Pharmacists, Virginia Escudero and María Dolores Ortiz, representing the Medicines Information Centre, inaugurated the tent installed in the centre of the town, in the Plaza José Miras Carrasco.

Throughout the day, from 10am to 2pm and from 4pm to 6pm, pharmacists from the northern area of the province of Almeria, from towns such as Albox, Arboleas, Taberno, Macael, Sierro and Overa, took measurements of cholesterol, diabetes, stress level, venous return, body composition, cardiovascular risk, osteoporosis and skin analysis.

“With this initiative, which has been a great success, we value the educational work on healthy lifestyle habits. It also helps us to prevent illnesses among our neighbours and we can help them live longer and better lives,” said the mayoress of Albox, María del Mar Alfonso.

“Pharmacists are a crucial figure for the health of the population. They are the first link in the health system, where patients go every day. Here we see how they are giving them healthy advice that is very important for their health,” said the Delegate for Health, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte.

Coinciding with the weekly market, attendance was massive. The ‘Carpa de la Salud’ has hosted measurements and screenings of parameters such as blood pressure, risk of osteoporosis, venous insufficiency, body composition, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, skin analysis or stress level. All the residents who attended were attended by a pharmacist who took the necessary measurements and then, depending on their profile, gave them the relevant health advice, in view of the results of the measurements.
