November 28, 2017 4:17 am /

Mayor Crisostomo “Cris” Garbo (MCG) worked hand-in-hand with the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS), with the help of Rural Health Unit (RHU) staffs, for the celebration of World Skin Health Day held in Barangay Dau.

With the theme “Balat Alagaan Laban sa Sakit : Libreng Konsulta at Gamot,” the celebration aims to recognise and promote skin health to Mabalaqueños. In line, seven dermatologists rendered their services for free consultation and medicines were provided by MCG, to make sure that the event will be a success.

More than hundred of Mabalaqueños were able to participate in the one-day medical mission and the dermatologists on duty were able to address all their skin-related complaints, a lot of them are hoping that it will happen again in the near future. As health is the main priority of MCG, this is not far from happening.

This event was made possible with the cooperation of International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS), the International Society of Dermatology (ISD) and Dau Barangay Captain Oscar Aurelio.
