On Friday, June 14, 2019, residents of Old Harbour Bay can look forward to receiving free medical and non-medical services at JEP’s health and wellness fair at Old Harbour Bay Primary School from 9 am to 4 pm.

Highlights include a special address from Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr Christopher Tufton, live performance from recording artiste Tifa as well as a back to school treat for students in the community.

This year, under the theme “Increasing Access to Healthcare Services”, JEP celebrates five years of improving the health and sustainability of the community by ensuring that adults and children receive quality medical care at no cost to them.

JEP’s health fairs are executed under its Corporate Social Responsibility Portfolio, which is powered by a cadre of assiduous and devoted committee members and also extended to all employees within the companies.

JEP invests annually in this worthwhile initiative because we understand that the prevalence of chronic and other types of diseases can pose a grave economic burden on the community, especially services such as general medicals, dental care, vision and cancer screening which are costly.  

Other offerings available to residents include HIV and syphilis testing; child immunizations; pharmaceutical services, the administration of various vaccines; registration of birth/death/marriage certificates; National Youth Service; Child Protection and Family Services Agency; RADA; passport applications/renewals; financial advice and presentations from reputable institutions.

"To serve all patrons in a timely and orderly manner, we ask that residents arrive early and bring their TRN and ID with them," JEP said in a release.
