Over the past months, the School of Health Sciences at MUBS completed an unprecedented health awareness campaign in Lebanese schools around the country, benefiting over 1050 students who underwent health screening that included glucose level testing, visual acuity screening, body composition testing, and Body Mass Index (BMI) assessments. These services were offered free of charge to schools in rural and urban settings, private as well as public schools. In line with the University's mission of community engagement and within the framework of social responsibility, a team of medical doctors, optometrists, and dietitians, supported by distinguished students of Public Health, Nutrition, and Optometry & Vision Science from the School of Health Sciences took part in the remarkable campaign. In addition to the screenings, students attended lectures discussing the latest discoveries and issues in Nutrition, Dietetics, and Optometry.

As a sponsor of the campaign, Roche - Lebanon has generously funded materials used for glucose testing including glucose meters, strips and Accu-Check Safe-T-Pro Uno units.

The visits included the following schools: Marroun Aboud Ebadeyi, Marroun Aboud Aley, Shouf National College, European Lebanese School, NOA School Kabreshmoun, Grand Lycee Barja, Lebanese American School, Saint Joseph de l’Apparition, Kfarhim High School, Hariri High School II, Shahid Hassan Kassir Beirut, Pine Modern College Beirut, Ras Al Matn, and a health orientation session at Charite School-Beirut.

The health campaign will continue in new locations, targeting children and adults in various areas of the country, expanding the benefits to more Lebanese and non-Lebanese citizens in need of medical attention.
