First stop after we went back to our community immersion is the hypertension and diabetic summit—a program hosted by the Rural Health Unit to bring awareness and improve the knowledge and practices regarding hypertension and diabetes.
2 guest speakers from our batch were invited by our dear MHO to discuss on the said topics. Registered hypertensive and diabetic individuals from the municipality were all present and attentive during the program.
One of the highlight of the program was the district ZUMBA dance contest. All 20 barangays were divided into 4 districts; each has 5 barangays under it. They all came up with creative, graceful, and entertaining dance move.
They were also entertained by sweet music and melodious voice from our RHU staff and the medical students. And everybody danced to the groove of “Dahil sayo” Zumba dance craze.
At the end of the day, we all had a good time and learned new knowledge from the event. See you HPN-DM summit 2018!
