Barangay Health Day – "Kalusugan, Makakamtan sa Tamang Kaalaman" (Health through Education)

posted May 19, 2015, 2:30 AM by Barangay Tortugas
It's been a long tradition in our barangay to have free consultation / check-up with medical volunteers and to give free prescription medicines to our residents during our Barangay Health Day. We realized though, that a great number of these patients were not really sick. They come just to get the free medicines being handed out. And because of this, with the help of our City Health Doctor, Dr. Mariano Antonio Banzon, our very efficient nurse, Ms. Shiela Zabala, we decided to enhance this activity with the theme: Kalusugan, Makakamtam sa Tamang Kaalaman. The doctors speak to patients / residents on how to avoid being sick.

What a successful program we had! Residents did not only have free check-up.  The doctors also gave them information and helpful tips on how to avoid being sick and maintain a healthy body.

Salamat po sa inyong mga tulong!
