PRESS RELEASE – THE third annual Employee Health Fair organized by Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa took place on May 4, 2018 with over two hundred and fifty staff members participating in the event.
The Employee Health Fair was undertaken in collaboration with twelve health care service providers, health product suppliers, counselling services, the Royal St. Lucia Police Force Vulnerable Persons Unit, the resort’s greenhouse agronomist and individual doctors.
Head of Coconut Bay Human Resource Department, Ms. Juliana Samuel who organized the Employee Health Fair explained that the Employee Health Fair’s main purpose was: “To heighten the awareness of staff to available health care services and resources and encourage them to take advantage of such services as part of a preventative health care concept”.
Organisers expressed gratification that male employees in particular capitalized on the free and subsidised services available through the Health Fair. According to the Human Resource Department a significant number of men availed themselves for prostate cancer and diabetes testing.
Coconut Bay is thankful to all the private and public-sector entities along with individual doctors who contributed in ensuring the success of the third annual Employee Health Fair.
