Progress with Health Information Drive in Laguna

Goducate Laguna launched a Health Information Drive for the community in February this year. We are helping the community by increasing their awareness of the threats and complications of diabetes, and hypertension and the benefits of Malunggay (Moringa olifera). Apart from free lectures on the topic, we also do weekly follow-up visits to check blood pressures and do some counselling.
