To promote health and wellness among employees especially amidst this Covid-19 pandemic, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau-9 invited the Department of Health Regional Office IX to give lectures on Stress Management, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Awareness. Dra. Maria Agnes Mabolo and Mr. Kench Lao of DOH-IX served as resource persons on the said topics.
Earlier in the morning, MGB-IX employees had their Blood Pressure screening, random blood sugar testing and free consultation, which was also facilitated by DOH-IX nurses while Dra. Melanie Grace Susalo-Tahil from Labuan General Hospital provided for the medical consultation.
This MGB-IX activity is in partnership with the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Employee's Association (MGBEA) Chapter and Regional GAD Focal Point System of the region.
