Central Pattaya residents took advantage of free diabetes and blood pressure checks at a neighborhood health fair.
Saiying Munagthong, head of the Soi Arunothai Community Basic Public Health Center, opened the July 17 project with village health volunteers. They provided basic checkups and supplied non-prescription medication and mosquito abate to neighbors.
The volunteers also advised locals about proper dietary habits and basic self-care, especially to those suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure.
The Soi Arunothai Community runs its health fair every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon.
