Fernandinos Avail Free Neuro Screening [ Friday, 15th of July 2016 | 8 months ago ]
Dr. Maricel Lapid, Rural Health Physician, said some 150 fernandinos availed the free neuro screening and consultation that may determine if they are suffering from depression, stress, anxiety, dementia, pain, seizures, and insomnia.
“Each participant underwent pre-screening (to identify what kind of disorder they may have) before they were referred to our psychiatrist or neurologist,” she added.
Dubbed ‘Lingap Diwa’, the program seeks to help participants achieve a healthier state of mind, brain and body.
For his part, Mayor Edwin Santiago said that one of his administration’s agenda is to provide various comprehensive health programs to the Fernandinos.
He also stressed the importance of being mentally fit in boosting a healthier body and preventing other brain-related disorders.
“It is important that we keep not only our bodies, but also our minds in shape, so we can fulfill our duties as responsible Fernandinos,” Santiago furthered.
Meanwhile, participants were also given medication for free.
