Anti-Smoking Symposium

posted Aug 18, 2014, 2:08 PM by Barangay Tortugas
Smoking related diseases, the likes of cancer, heart and pulmonary diseases KILL! Our Barangay is consistent in giving information seminars as part of our awareness movement in our effort to totally eradicate smoking.

Our Barangay Health Committee and Barangay Captain, Vic Baluyot annually conducts an anti-smoking program informing of its side effects to the pupils of the Tortugas Elementary School. Learning the harmful effects of smoking from an early age hopes to discourage these young people to take up smoking at all. 

We like to thank the teachers, the City Health Office headed by Ma’am Sheila Zabala.  We are able to clearly send the message of this matter across to the pupils. Thank you for your help and cooperation.
