State reps use social media to promote free health screening programme

By Siti Rohaizah Zainal

SHAH ALAM, June 23 — Dusun Tua state assemblyman Edry Faizal Eddy Yusof has started using social media platforms to promote the free health screening programme, which will be held at Dewan Komuniti Kampung Batu 9 in Cheras this Sunday, to his constituents.

He said announcements made through the platforms reach the targeted audience faster thus ensuring more people would benefit from the programme.

“Apart from social media, I also spread the news about the programme on the WhatsApp messaging app that has a group chat with residents’ representatives from the entire Dusun Tua area.

“The public is advised to download the SELangkah mobile app first so that their screening process will be smooth,” he said to SelangorKini.

Meanwhile Morib state assemblyman Hasnul Baharuddin said he collaborated with state government agencies in Kuala Langat to promote the Selangor Saring screening programme.

“We seek help from the Kuala Langat Municipal Council (MPKL)l, land office and Works Department to help promote the programme which is included in the Selangor Penyayang roadshow.

“Tomorrow, we will continue promoting at several mosques in the area. Do not miss the chance to undergo the screening as it is not similar to the diabetic and hypertension checks,” he said.

The free health screening will continue this week at Dataran Pantai Morib in Kuala Langat on June 25.

The programme will also be held concurrently at Dewan Kampung Batu 9 in Cheras and Dewan Komuniti Taman Pelangi in Semenyih on June 26.
