On Saturday 2 February members of the Mobile Clinic Club visited the scenic village of Sotira in the Famagusta district. The mayor of Sotira welcomed the volunteers at the Municipality Building, which was used to perform blood pressure, blood glucose and spirometry measurements. Approximately 40 people were examined, all of whom received advice from accompanying physician and Medical School alumnus Dr Soteris Demosthenous prior to their departure.
Around noon, and on the way to lunch courtesy of the Sotira Municipality, the team was given a short tour around the community’s places of interest.
