At our first large-scale physical event since emerging from the pandemic, about 300 residents turned up at Hong Kah North Community Club last Saturday to learn how to stay healthy and prevent the onset of chronic conditions. They were joined by Dr Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment & Ministry of Transport, who is also Advisor to Hong Kah North Grassroots Organisations.
Through health education booth and screenings, residents were educated and empowered with tips and resources to take charge of their own health!

They say prevention is better than cure. This year, Health On Track returned to NTFGH on 18 March 2023 - when more than 300 participants turned up for a morning of fun-filled and engaging activities. There was an interactive set-up where we shared information on how to make our homes safer for the elderly, education booths where our healthcare professionals provided useful resources and tips, art and craft booths where creativity was unleashed, and a variety of exciting carnival games for everyone in the family.
There were also exercise workshops by Active Health SG, as well as a series of public talks where our healthcare experts presented topics ranging from how to prepare nutritious meals for the whole family, how to care for young children at home, how to navigate the healthcare system, and what to look out for when self-medicating.
