Free ophthalmological endocrinological consultations for tourists at the sea side

Until August the 20th, all tourists on the Romanian seaside, in Neptun, Olimp, Mangalia, Costineşti and Saturn resorts, can benefit from free ophthalmological endocrinological consultations. The campaign is organized by the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, in collaboration with professional societies of dermatologists and endocrinologists.
The President of the Romanian Society of Endocrinology, prof. dr. Cătălina Poiană, says that osteoporosis is an underdiagnosed disease and, therefore, only less than a quarter of the women who suffer from it are getting treatment.
Consultations will be offered until August the 20th, between 9:00 and 12:00 and 15:00-18:00.

Fines will be double for vehicles transporting people, while, for cars, the fine will rise from 500 to 550 lei.
