LGU’s Mobile Health Clinic visits Brgy. Talipan, offered health services

The local government’s Mobile Health Clinic visited a sitio in Brgy. Talipan to offer free medical and dental services, June 16, 2017.

From last week’s Sitio Fori visit, the Mobile Health Clinic visited another sitio in Brgy. Talipan to provide free medical and dental services to the residents.

Some of the services given through the Mobile Health Clinic were prenatal and infant check-ups, infant vaccination, circumcision (tuli), dental extraction (bunot ng ngipin), X-ray, ECG, and free medicines and vitamins. Municipal Health Officer, Dr. Nathaniel Merene, also treats small tumors (bukol).

Also provided was the cervical cancer screening for women age 25 to 45, with or without children. To detect the possibility of cervical cancer among these women, the Municipal Health Office uses a method called cryotherapy.

In another Mobile Health Clinic visitation, Mayor Shierre Ann Portes-Palicpic explained that cervical cancer is an asymptomatic illness, meaning it usually has no signs. The symptoms become noticeable only when the patient is already at stage four and the cancer is almost impossible to cure. The screening helps prevent such incident to happen.

The Municipality of Pagbilao is known for being the very first municipality in Quezon Province to offer free cervical cancer screening.

The Mobile Health Clinic is manned by a team of licensed health personnel from the Municipal Health Office headed by Dr. Merene.
