2nd Kapatiran General Assembly 2020 Heart Month "Mahalin and Pusong Nagmamahal, Mag Healthy Lifestyle Na!"
February 26, 2020
For this month’s General Assembly and in celebration of the Heart’s Month, our facility invited Ms. Tanyalux Bella, RN, a nurse assigned at the Heart Station of CRMC as our resource speaker. Her lecture focused on how to have a healthy heart with the theme “Mahalin ang Pusong Nagmamahal, Mag-Healthy Lifesyle Na!”.
It was beneficial to our enrolled TB patients, both for the DOTS and PMDT, since some of the Anti-TB medications have an adverse drug reaction affecting their heart such as QT segment prolongation. We also conducted a free consultation and distributed food packs for treatment center-based patients and two inmates. Direct Observe Treatment (DOT) to all DOTS and MDR patients was also done.
