The Johor Bahru Hainan Association had recently organised a talk on Heart health called “The Silent Killer” by Dr Ng Kim Fong, who is a Clinical Cardiology Specialist from Hospital Sultanah Aminah and the President of Persatuan Doktor-Doktor Johor (PDDJ) at its activity centre in Taman Pelangi.

The heart health talk was very relevant and beneficial as it was recently reported in The Star that ischaemic heart disease continues to be the main cause of death in Malaysia for the 14th year in 2018.

More than 100 people attended this enlightening talk, and they were shown first-hand what a Stent, Pacemaker and a Balloon Catheter looked like.

The talk was complimentary and open to the public. It was the first community service project organised by the Socio-Economic Bureau of the Johor Bahru Hainan Association which was set up this year to help improve the well-being of its members and the community.

The new Socio-Economic Bureau is headed by Datuk Seri Teo Shiok Fu JP and his team consisting of Loo Chuan Kiat (Deputy Head), Jo Wong, Priscilla Tan, Goh Shu Ching and Nyam Kee Han.  The Association’s President, Foo Suan Soo is the Bureau’s Adviser.

Datuk Seri Teo hopes that the Johor Bahru Hainan Association’s future projects will help improve the well-being of its members and the community at large.  Future projects would include more health talks for the community, an annual career talk and an annual mini medical camp for its members and their families.
