MLC San Diego, MMSU, Batac LGU conduct medical mission

About 700 residents from the 43 barangays in Batac City benefited from the free medical mission and healthy lifestyle seminar held at MMSU Teatro Ilocandia last February 16.

Collaboratively conducted by MMSU, the Metropolitan Lions Club (MLC) at San Diego County in California, and the city government of Batac, the activity was also supported by the MMSU Federated Alumni Association, Inc. (FAAI), and the Department of Family and Community Medicine of the Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital and Medical Center (MMMH-MC).

It was more of a humanitarian effort to help ameliorate the health conditions of the underprivileged residents of Batac City.

The services include free medical consultation, distribution of medicines and reading glasses, as well as series of talks on healthy lifestyle.

“I am happy with the conduct of the first and biggest medical mission in Ilocos Norte,” MMSU President Shirley C. Agrupis said, adding that “our vision is dynamically unfolding as we aggressively pursue our commitment to impact the lives of our stakeholders.”

“We don’t want you to be left unserved,” Dr. Agrupis said, giving assurance to the attendees of the university’s support to all the residents of this city.

“The free medical mission was a great help to the residents in our city,” remarked MMSU-FAAI President Bismark Angelo Quidang as he hoped for a more community outreach programs that will be conducted in the future.

The medical mission was graced by the 14 members of the Club led by MLC President Leo Sicat and Batac City Mayor Albert D. Chua.
