The Christian Medical Dental and Paramedical Society (CMDPS) officers from the Ecclesiastical District of Zamboanga del Sur, in the Philippines, conducted a free health monitoring within the house of worship compound of the Local Congregation of Pagadian City on September 19, 2023.

Dr. Leslee Joy Legurpa and Vanessa Ana Ibatuan, who are resident nurses and the district CMDPS’s president and vice president, respectively, led fellow CMDPS officers in monitoring the blood pressure and blood sugar of all the attendees.

Brethren from the local congregations of Bayog, Lenienza, Molave, and Pagadian City benefited from the activity.

The CMDPS officers reminded the brethren to always keep their health on check, especially those whose family health history were diagnosed with chronic diseases, like diabetes and hypertension. Those who already take maintenance medications must do so on time, the nurses added, as well as having proper diet.

“As a medical practitioner, I aim to help people, such as the brethren, in better understanding their health for their family and for their services to our Lord God,” said Janeth Camasura, a registered medical technologist and the CMDPS secretary.

“I benefited from this activity by being aware about how to take care of my health so that I can continue fulfilling my Church duties,” Elsa Macalisang, a deaconess from the Pagadian City Congregation, said. — With reports from Shaina Freya Nasol of INC News Section
