As part of the Cooperate Social Responsibility of the University, the Student Representative Council (S.R.C) of the Regional Maritime University (RMU) organized a free health screening exercise for the Nungua Community on Saturday, 16th March, 2019 in Accra.

This laudable initiative was part of efforts by the S.R.C to support the people within the community address key health concerns including blood pressure, hypertension, hepatitis, and H.I.V as well as blood donation.
Explaining the rationale behind the health screening, the S.R.C President, Dikwal Emmanuel Maclean, clarified that the exercise was a step to reach out to the Nungua Community where the University is located. He added that, the University had plans underway to sustain the activity and make it an annual event for the community.
