UST Medical Mission

Sen. Rodriguez with members of the University of Santo Tomas Alumni Org. and Department of Public Health during their Medical Mission 2012.


The Annual Medical Mission sponsored by the University of Santo Tomas Alumni Organization in partnership with the Department of Public Health and Social Services along with other organizations on Saturday, June 30, 2012 in the Swamp Road area was a success.

The mission was to bring health screenings and education for members of the community who may not have accessible health care.  Dozens of the island's residents participated in the mission underwent health assessments by volunteer Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals.

"It is the loving and caring hearts of these volunteers from UST, DPHSS and other organizations who come to help our families who do not have direct medical care.  The assessments done today will help our families learn what their health risks are and hopefully encourage them to seek medical care to control these risks or to help them make positive health changes in their day to day lives.  Congratulations to all who helped make this year's medical mission a success!"  Sen. Rodriguez stated.
