Connecting Human And Environmental Health

Education is necessary not only to promote a healthy personal lifestyle, but also a healthy approach to the Bahamas’ world-famous environment.

That is why the Fourth Terrace Diagnostic Centre is making the connection between human health and environmental health by supporting the future environmental stewards of the Bahamas. The Diagnostic Centre is leading an important corporate charge by supporting the BNT’s Discovery Club.

The facility awarded 10 lucky students a chance to take part in the Discovery Club through their donation. The programme touches the lives of over 1,300 children and trains 200 teachers around the country.

In-house counsel for Fourth Terrace Diagnostic Centre, Simon E Darville said: “For over 30 years Fourth Terrace Diagnostic Centre has been committed to the health and well-being of the people of the Bahamas, just as the National Trust has been committed to the well-being of our natural resources. Education is necessary not only to promote a healthy personal lifestyle, but also a healthy approach to our world-famous environment. Fourth Terrace is excited to support the National Trust Discovery Club kids programme.”

The BNT said it is thrilled by this level of corporate support from the Fourth Terrace Diagnostic Centre. The donation of $2,600 covers the costs of offering the award-winning club to the students for a full year.

BNT Director of Education Portia Sweeting said: “We thank the Fourth Terrace Diagnostic Centre for their donation to the Discovery Club programme that will allow us to connect more students with nature. Discovery Club is a national programme that reaches students on nine different islands. It allows members to explore nature through favourite pastimes such and camping, snorkelling, birdwatching and hikes, but more importantly, it allows us to train young people who will address enormous issues of our lifetime such as climate change and the environment.”
