Public Health Service (PHS) is an annual health screening project organised by the NUS Medical Society that aims to promote health awareness amongst Singapore’s public. PHS was initiated in 2004 under the NUS Medical Society by a small but passionate group of medical students. From humble beginnings as a simple screening event with only 4 modalities, PHS has grown and matured tremendously to become one of the largest and most comprehensive student-led public health screenings in Singapore. Our flagship health screening is held free of charge and has 3 main components: Health Education, Health Screening and Follow-Up.
The annual health screening was held from 20 Aug 2022 (Saturday) to 21 Aug 2022 (Sunday) in Jurong East, at the Canopy @ J-Link. This year, we served over 1000 Singaporeans and Permanent residents and reached out to more than 35,000 people in the community through door-to-door and on-site education. Our event also engaged hundreds of volunteers serving in the community, including passionate student volunteers from various healthcare institutions and healthcare workers.
