HOM in Partnership with MSU-IIT College of Nursing, Sagip Iligan and City Health Office conducts BP Apparatus Training to IDPs

HOM in Partnership with MSU-IIT College of Nursing, Sagip Iligan and City Health Office conducts BP Apparatus Training to the Internally Displaced Persons at the Diosesan Evacuation Center in Brgy. Luinab, Iligan City.

Sphygmomanometer: An instrument for measuring blood pressure, particularly in arteries. 
A Sphygmomanometer comes together with a Stethoscope to 
accurately and easily measure Blood Pressure
So this is the story of how this project started:
"Gathering funds for the Sphygmomanometer Project was inspired when Ms. Maria Lourdes Eudela of Health Organization of Mindanao and the volunteer doctor visited a blind man in the evacuation center. She asked him the thing that he wants and to her awe, instead of asking for an eye transplant, he requested for a BP Apparatus to be provided for the camp to monitor blood pressure."

Ms. Maria Lourdes Eudela delivering her message
to the Beneficiaries  of the training and sharing the story behind it.

Ms Karen Veloso, a Sagip Iligan Member and  a  Teacher from
the MSU- IIT College of Nursing also delivered her message.
Students introduced themselves before the lectures started wearing
their name tags and awesome smiles.
The nursing students of MSU-IIT were the ones in charge to the training and lectures. They talked about what is and what affects our Blood Pressure. One student discusses the topic and one carries the visual aid for them to easily see.

 After the first topic was discussed, they gave an awesome entertainment with singing and dancing. 
Students dancing to the groove of the music.

Their smiles as they perform is really contagious.
 And to the next part of the program was about the basic parts of the  BP Apparatus and Stethoscope and how to use it.

 The final part included the actual usage of the apparatus by the IDPs.

 This is just the launching and  the first ever of the series of training to be conducted on different transitory sites in Iligan City! Through cooperation and interdependence, we were able to move one step in educating others on the importance of using these apparatuses. May we stay healthy and fit! :)
