In its drive to make MUT stay a positive experience for the students, MUT Clinic runs a week-long programme in which various health activities are done. The Head of the Clinic, Sister Nomsa Mkhwanazi, said this year they were going to run these for two weeks twice a semester. . This semester’s programme ends today. “Some of our students come from far flung areas where resources are limited. These resources are curative centres. The students would only go to health centres when they are sick. We are promoting preventative health. We focus on health problems that are associated with lifestyle.” The Clinic’s partners in health gave students and staff a range of health checks. There was pap’s smear, testing STIs, cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, minor ailments and more.
