Wellness Day services benefit Capitol workers

Cebu Provincial Government’s Capitol employees trooped to the social hall for free health services last Aug. 4. The Provincial Health Office set up the social hall into a ‘one-stop venue’ for Wellness Day services they offered from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Wellness Day is one of the activities of the ongoing month-long 446th Founding Anniversary of the province. Medical doctors and other personnel were pulled out from the district and provincial hospitals around the province for the purpose.
