|AMC provides health checkup to twenty marriage immigrants from eight countries|
|Date : 2016.08.30|
We call those who were born in other countries such as the Philippines, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Thailand, and Vietnam, yet married to Koreans to live here as a member of Korean society as marriage immigrants and their family as a multicultural family. AMC provided these marriage immigrants with free health checkup services at the Health Screening and Promotion Center from July 19 to 29. This event was held at the request of the Seoul Immigration Office for twenty people including ▲basic livelihood security recipients and lower income families ▲marriage immigrants recommended in the neighborhood, and ▲excellent volunteers.
They haven’t received health checkups, but this time could have systematic overall health examinations including conscious sedation colonoscopy, low dose chest CT or breast ultrasonography as well as basic health screening.
Morsett (male, 43) from Bangladesh said, “I haven’t afforded to take care of health because of a busy life for 17 years since I’ve come to Korea. But now I can have a health checkup for the first time in my life thanks to my people’s help.”
Ahn Sun-hwa (female, 52) from China said, “After 50, I started seriously worrying about my health, and it’s really happy to receive health examinations thanks to this event. I could get clear answers to my worries, so from now on I want to live a healthy happy life.”
AMC plans to continue offering treatment services for patients having abnormal findings through the physical examinations, and supporting medically-isolated neighbors by building a close cooperation network with government-affiliated organizations.
