MANILA, June 1 (PNA) — More than 50 kids, mostly schoolchildren, on Monday benefited from a half-day outreach mission of the East Avenue Medical Center (EAMC) under Director Dr. Roland L. Cortez as part of the hospital’s community service in the most poor areas of Quezon City.

The children were treated by six pediatricians from EAMC led by consultant Dr. Grace S. Vergara, and Dr. Mary Jane Geneta, Women and Child Protection Unit specialist, during the outreach mission dubbed as “Balik Eskuwela” check up, held Monday afternoon at the Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Chapel in Purok 10, Litex area, Barangay Commonwealth, Quezon City.

Also present during the mission were Dr. Lourdes Cortez, wife of the EAMC director; Illinois, USA-based Dr. Beverly Claveria-Soyangco and daughter Katrina, who is a pre-med student at the Michigan University currently observing community services in the Philippines.

Apart from the medical service, the children were also provided with medicines, mostly vitamins, including goodies.

According to Dr. Geneta, Purok 10 is the adopted community of EAMC where regular medical services are being provided. One to two doctors from the hospital visit the area almost daily to check on the health and medical needs of the community.

Geneta said that prior to Monday’s mission, the hospital conducted last week an orientation, Vitamin A supplementation, oral hygiene or dental check-up and seminar for pregnant mothers.

The recipients thanked members of the the mission, saying that EAMC’s undertaking already helped many needy residents in their community. (PNA)
