In its resolve to sustain the campaign for preventive diseases through effective lifestyle modification and clinical management, a team of Nigerian and Expatriate medical consultants across various field of preventive & curative medicine has berthed the first branded lifestyle outreach in Lagos.
Christened ‘Grover Medical’s Lifestyle Clinic,’ the initiative is pioneered by Chief Anil Grover, a renowned medical diagnostic consultant and pharmacist with Pharmacology background.
With over 15 years’ experience in the healthcare industry in Africa, Grover was the immediate past Chief Marketing Director of Mecure Healthcare Limited and Chief Executive Officer of Afriglobal Diagnostic Centre.
Squatting strategically on Adetokunbo Ademola Street in Victoria Island, Lagos, the lifestyle clinic offers for special cases like Cardiovascular, Diabetes, Stress Management, Vaccination, Nutritional / Dietician services, Weight management & Obesity counselling, Overseas surgical services, Pharmacy services, Corporate Easy Lifestyle plans and Nephrology (kidney).
Others are Stroke management, Dermatology, Oncology, electrocardiogram, Echocardiography, Sonography, lifestyle & nutrition, Annual comprehensive Health check-up and Pre-employment screening packages.
Speaking with Pharmanews, Sunday Clement, and the clinic’s Wellness & Lifestyle Consultant disclosed that the choice of opening up their first outlet in Victoria Island was strategic owing to the growing trend of lifestyle diseases among young Corporate Executives as well as to cater for those whose sedentary lifestyle gives one cause for concern.
While lamenting the unhealthy eating habit of Nigerians, Clement, a Certified Associate Member of American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) identified the top five causes of worldwide death annually as Cardiovascular disease (17.3 million), Respiratory disease (4.2 million), Cancer (7.5 million), Diabetes (1.2 million) and Stroke (2.1 million).
“Grover Medical’s Lifestyle Clinic philosophy is that optimal health and performance can be attained through the proper balance of exercise, nutrition, and education.
“Our goal is to boost lifespan expectancy in Nigeria through effective lifestyle modification, preventive and clinical care of lifestyle diseases. With the emergence of a Lifestyle Clinic in Nigeria, young Nigerians would no longer die of preventable diseases. Although Victoria Island is our first point of call, we will soon open up branches on the mainland as well,” he disclosed.
