The reigning Miss Tourism Nigeria, Eastern Queen, Olebu Chinonyerem Joy has extended love to her territory with her health oriented project aimed at checking health status of participants especially with free Hepatitis vaccination and lecture. The seminar attracted several participants numbering 50 who were tested and vaccinated across the state based on different age grades.

The event which featured dance performance had Commissioner for health Ondo state Dr. Dayo Adeyanju as as the special Guest of Honour. He applauded the Beauty queen for her health initiative and promised to support the continuous execution the project in other parts of the state. Also at the health project was Dr. Stephen Fagbemi who lectured on Hepatitis B, the causes, the ways of contracting it, symptoms and precautions to reduce the risk of the infection‎.The project recorded impressive turnout and participation from health workers who supported the exercise as well as Martin- Mary Falana- Executive director of Kids and Teen resource centre, who gave overwhelming speech on the subject and ‎Barr. Bolanle Olafunmiloye - Chairman WECCA.

In her my closing remarks, Queen Joy, said the idea of the project was conveived based on the ignorance of most people about how deadly Hepatitis B can be to mankind. She however implored the participants present to go spread the news about Hepatitis B now that they are fully enlightened about d epidemic and look up to major sponsors as there wll be subsequent campaigns‎. In her words " The need to diversify and care for people has actually propelled me to embrace a sensitive and sometimes delicate health challenge(hepatitis B)‎ over 8 years stay in, Akure has endeared me even more closly to Ondo state and that is the reason why I am launching my pet project in Akure as Miss Tourism Nigeria Eastern Queen"

‎The activities of the campaign and vaccination against Hepatitis B began with a flashmob at Shoprite, Akure on Februare14th, 2017 which later climaxed at the multipurpose hall of the Ondo state Senior staff club. The graduate of  Project Management from Federal University of Technology, Akure‎, came into limelight in Ondo state when she emerged the 2nd Runner up at the Ondo state talent hunt 2012 and further won the Maltina dance GIG in Akure a year later.
