Yakutian capital started “Relay of Health”

 Last Friday, School No 5 of Yakutsk started “Relay of Health”. This name has been chosen not for nothing: the events will be carried out one after another every day in different schools.

During “Relay of Health”, anyone can undergo chest x-rays, and any women over 45 years old can pass mammography. Both of these diagnostic tests can detect disease in its earliest stages when it easily responds to treatment. The main thing is that people can do it without standing in long queues in polyclinics for appointment cards or to procedures.
Organizers invite everyone and wait for active participation of employees of kindergartens and schools, because a new school year is ahead. Besides, they invite production collectives and residents of the city districts to take care of their health.
