HPUPM Talk #14

Sunathon 2018


Shah Alam, December 1 - UPM's Teaching Hospital has taken the initiative to end the HPUPM Promotion Program Series by organizing HPUPM Talk # 14: Sunathon 2018 at Al-Falah Mosque, Jalan Kebun Shah Alam on 1st December. The program was held in collaboration with MyMedic Team (MyMedical Healthcare Sdn Bhd) headed by Mr Salleh and Putra Medical Club.

In addition to the objective of introducing HPUPM to the public, the program aims to serve the community, particularly in circumcision, health screening and counseling by physicians. Disclosure of community service to students can also provide a platform for them to open their minds, concern for the community and form a better sense of identity.

The program started with the registration of the circumcision participants with their parents and followed by a watering session by the Bomba. Participants accompanied by parents, visitors and mascot throughout the march for mass watering sessions. Throughout the circumcision session, variety of interesting activities was conducted for visitors.

Activities were divided into two segments, for adults and children. While the circumcised participants are waiting for their turn, magical performances by clowns were held to reduce their nervous. Meanwhile, coloring contest for siblings or child-led visitors also was held to fill the time and sharpen their artistic talents.

A healthy cooking competition also was conducted for adult visitors where there are 5 contesting groups to cook using the ingredients provided. At the same time, health screening and counseling sessions from medical specialists are also held for visitors who want to check their health status and have questions for the medical experts.

The interaction session with this community runs smoothly. A total of 86 participants have been circumcised and 150 people have participated in health screening. The half-day program ended with a prize presentation to the winners of the cooking contest, coloring and lucky draw and subsequent rollout cleaning the mosque area.

This program has been the starting point for HPUPM in providing services to the community and subsequently being the catalyst for future HPUPM community programs.
