Twenty-seven participants comprised of Barangay officials, Barangay police and Health Workers of Brgys. San Nicolas & Barobaybay attended the training. Fifteen children also joined the workshop training.
The training started with first aid lectures followed by a demonstration facilitated by the clinical instructors of the College.
The training includes participant’s demonstration of methods and application of bandage and splints and were validated by the instructors. Leonardo Cañaveral, the barangay captain of Brgy. San Nicolas expressed his gratitude and the need of the training. According to Cañaveral, the workshop was appropriate for his community because of their distance to medical institutions.
The activity was concluded by a simple community merienda.
