Over 2,200 indigent residents of Rosales and Urdaneta City in Pangasinan were provided with the free medical and dental services conducted by SM Foundation on August 28 and 29, 2019.
Patients were given free services such as medical consultation, random blood sugar test, uric acid test, cholesterol check, bone density scanning, dental consultation and tooth extraction.
X-ray test and electrocardiograph (ECG) were likewise availed by the patients through SM Foundation Mobile Clinic.
Through the “Gamot Para sa Kapwa” medicine campaign, patients also received prescription medicines and vitamins.
The medical and dental mission was made possible through the partnership of volunteer doctors, dentists, nurses and marshals from Municipal Health Office of Rosales, Pangasinan Medical Society, Philippine Academy of Family Physician – Pangasinan Chapter, Region 1 Medical Center, Philippine Red Cross – Pangasinan Chapter, Urdaneta City Health Office, Multicare Pharmaceutical and SM Employees.
Since 2001, SM Foundation has brought these services to marginalized communities through its medical missions and its Felicidad T. Sy Wellness Program.
