22 July 2020, Sta. Fe, Nueva Vizcaya.-A good friend with a deep sense of volunteerism in outreach projects benefitting people, especially the marginalized and those in the uplands and far-flung areas, engaged herself anew on a humanitarian medical mission in the southern hinterlands of the province… This latest involvement of Ms. Leticia B. Puguon, R.N., Ph.D. a retired provincial government employee, is one of the pet activities that she used to do even outside work days/hours when she was still in the government service… She joined today’s Primary Health Care Mission of the BITE Implant Team, DOH staff, Barangay officials headed by Chairman Sonny Calansi, and some volunteers like her in the IP-dominated Barangay Bantinan of Sta. Fe…”Among the activities undertaken by the group included the conduct of some lectures on Reproductive Health and implants for child spacing for around 20 Married Women of Reproductive Age (MWRA), distribution of multivitamins among senior citizens and MWRA, and influenza vaccination of senior citizens”, said Ms. Puguon…”It was a challenging but fulfilling day for all the key players in this upland indigenous community, given the dangers posed by the present COVID-19 pandemic”, she added.#jlc
