Advisories and Announcements
The Local Government Unit of Camiling in cooperation with the Municipal Health Office, Philippines Red Cross-Tarlac Chapter, APO-DAP Dental Association of the Philippines, Las Piñas Dental Group, AFRESCOM (Armed Forces of the Philippines Reserved Command), Gilberto Teodoro Memorial Hospital, Señor Sto. Niño Hospital, Salvador General Hospital, Dr. John Iglesia Medical Clinic, Private DOctors and Dentists in the municipality, worked hand-in-hand to the Medical & Dental Mission alongside the Bloodletting Program held last August 1, 2018.
The Medical-Dental Mission and Bloodletting Program kicked off immediately in celebration of the 54th Birthday of our Beloved Municipal Mayor - Honorable Erlon Clemente Agustin. Needless to say, birthday celebrants are the ones supposed to receive gifts but in this case, we Camileños are the ones who have received that very special gift.
For three consecutive years now, it has been a yearly devotion of our dear Municipal Mayor to invite Medical Professionals of varied specialties to render free healthcare services to the townspeople of Camiling. This August 1, 2018, we were able to uphold such tradition of continued public service.
The Medical Team is composed of forty-four (44) members comprised mainly of doctors of different specialties, nurses, and medical technologists. A total of five hundred sixty-four (564) patients were served (mostly medical consultations) with one hundred sixty-five (165) dental extractions. Indigent patients who availed of medical services were given supply of medicines. On the other hand, a total of one hundred forty-one (141) successful blood donors took part in the Bloodletting Program.
Medical-Dental missions are a regular annual activity of the municipality in order to reach out all disadvantaged Camileños needing medical assistance. Conversely, it is part and parcel of the Local Government Unit of Camiling's compliance to its institutional mandate and mission.
