World Digestive Health Day 2018 Celebration
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the VHDP celebrating the World Digestive Health Day (WDHD). This programme is part of the initiative to raise awareness of digestive health among Malaysians. The launch of WDHD 2018 in conjunction with the road show will be held at Main Atrium, Ground Floor, Sunway Velocity Mall from 28th June to 1st July 2018.
VITAGEN’s commitment to the public
Since 2008, VHDP has been consistent in promoting the importance of good digestive health to the public. VHDP collaborates with expert bodies in order to provide expert information and free health checks to the public. This helps raise public awareness on the importance of digestive health and preventive measures. The collaborating expert bodies are Digestive Health Malaysia Society (DHM), Nutrition Month Malaysia (NMM) programme, Positive Parenting (PP) programme, and National Cancer Council (MAKNA).
As the market leader for over 40 years, VITAGEN continues to promote digestive care via public educational campaign and school programmes. VITAGEN has also been supporting and working closely with Pusat Perubatan Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (PPUKM) in a comprehensive research to investigate the correlation of good bacteria with the improvement of health and wellbeing.
The main highlight of the event will be the unveiling and presentation of the final results of the research by PPUKM after several years of effort. Apart from that, the Digestive Health Assessment Tool (DHAT), a user-friendly online assessment tool, will be available to the public for a quick evaluation of their digestive health. Other highlights include a public video screening on colon cancer—emphasising the ease of the check-up process to encourage the public to go for a regular medical check-up—as well as the distribution of stool test kits that can be used to check the presence of blood in a stool sample.
A wide array of activities for the whole family will also be featured at the four-day event; free health screenings, expert consultations, fitness demonstration, interactive digestive health games, and colouring contest. The highlight is a series of new interactive 3D Digestive Health Mural, where visitors can have fun taking photos, while learning about the digestive journey in our body.
