The newly crowned queen of Miss Health Ghana is Priscilla Serwaa Manu, a nurse from the Mampong Nursing Training School.
At this year’s grand finale at the GNAT Hall, it was a story of beauty and elegance, as Serwaa Manu saw off competition from nine other finalists to win a brand new 2017 Hyundai Accent as well as secure a one-year health ambassadorial agreement.
The first runner-up in this year’s competition was Akambey Awontemi Isabella, a medical student at the University of Growth Studies, while Gracia Helarie Fraikue, a student at the University of Health and Allied Sciences, was the second runner-up.
Under the theme “Creating Awareness on Mental Health” this year’s pageantry saw finalists undertake a “Beauty for Health project” which highlights the shortcomings in healthy living issues in a series of presentations.
Speaking at the finals, Mrs. Gladys Akyere Rockson, Chief Executive Officer of Lamrock Agency, pageantry organizers, said the platform of Miss Health Ghana was aimed at empowering beautiful young Ghanaian women to shift the discourse against the stereotyping of mentally ill people.
“First of all, I want to congratulate the health practitioners who helped combat the deadly coronavirus.
It was really difficult this year, but I am delighted to have led the pageant’s organization and I want to thank team members and supporters who have sponsored this path.
“Creating awareness on mental health is a collective fight for all but we as health practitioners are doing our best in taking positive actions towards changing the narrative and I believe this pageantry will spearhead this campaign in coming years,” she said.
As the election approaches, she urged Ghanaians, amid our political differences, to preserve the peace we enjoy and hopes that the elections will be one of the peaceful elections in the history of Ghana.
The pageant for this year is sponsored by, among other partners, Fly Zone Ghana, Adonko Next Stage, Blag Ghana Limited, Bela Aqua Mineral Water, Okuma Hotels, Slim Right, Asuavo Safe.
