FREE BONE SCANNING FOR SELECTED EMPLOYEES OF LGU LINGAYEN
Selected municipal employees and Barangay Health Workers from different barangays in Lingayen undergo free bone scanning or screening today, March 3, 2020.
With the help of Municipal Health Office, Mayor Leopoldo Bataoil initiates the said activity that benefits employees whose age is 30 years old and up.
Representatives of Nurture Med Phrama, Inc., a leading pharmaceutical company in the Philippines, administer the free bone scanning.
According to the Nurture Med Pharma, Inc. representatives, they perform such screening to determine the bones’ strength, brittleness and density. It is best to detect the bone’s strength to avoid getting in the stage where it becomes too brittle.
The representatives emphasize that they prioritize older women because they often lack calcium supplementation that causes them to become hunchback.
Aside from the free bone scanning, the representatives also give free calcium supplement to the employees to further enhance their bone strength. (MIO)
