Don’t relegate your health to the backburner – Women told

 Women have been tasked to seek healthcare for themselves as they pro­vide care for their families and work as professionals in their respective endeav­ours.

Brigadier General Feli­cia Twum- Barima, former Defence Attache’ of Cote’ d’Ivoire, urged women not to relegate their health to the backburner while they care for others or restore health to others.

She noted that often women in their bid to provide care for families and work as professionals turned to forget about their healthcare needs or relegated their health to the background.

“As mothers let’s remember that we can only give care if we are fit ourselves. Our time spent networking with each other will help us to find bal­ance between work and leisure

Brigadier General Twum-Barima was speaking at the maiden edition of the 37 Military Hospital’s Mother’s Day celebration held in Accra

The day, which was under the theme: “Ena’s Health is key,” sought to empower women with health ideas that ensured good health, happi­ness and longevity.

The occasion also brought together clinicians who spoke stress management, basic diet tips and check- ups on women health.

It was laced with cooking competition and provision of awards to some outstanding women at the hospital. Brig­adier General Twum-Barima, who was the chairperson for the occasion, commended the hospital for setting aside a day to recognise and appreciate mothers and females of the various units.
