LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, July 6 (PIA) — The provincial government held a free medical check-up for members of the Healthy Habit Club at the Pangasinan Training and Development Center in this town.
Dr. Anna Maria Teresa De Guzman, provincial health officer, said the program seeks to keep every employee physically fit and healthy.
She added that they can perform better and render quality service to Pangasinenses if they are free from any sickness.
The team of health personnel from the Provincial Health Office assessed the employees’ vital signs such as body temperature, pulse rate or heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. They also conducted Doppler test to measure the employees’ blood flow in the feet and lower leg.
Additional medical services included blood sugar test, body massage, cholesterol test, and vision therapy. Smokers took the lung function test to evaluate their respiratory system and identify the severity of pulmonary impairment.
Janet Asis, officer-in-charge of the Human Resource Management Office encouraged other employees to be part of the Healthy Habit Club and avail the same medical benefits given for free to its members. (ANL/AMM-PIA 1 Pangasinan with reports from the Provincial Information Office)
