Cebu Normal University (CNU) Balamban Campus has always strived for the development of its students in any good platforms available and possible. The University believes that the students’ welfare will always be its top priority in any undertaking, so that the students will soon become part of the country’s workforce and agents in nation-building. With this, different activities have been made for its clienteles.
Last October 30, 2019, the Balamban Campus celebrated the University Wellness Program in partnership with Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) Family Medicine Department and Philippine Red Cross Cebu Chapter that offered Free Health Consultation and conducted a Voluntary Non-Remunerated Mobile Blood Donation to the students.
It was spearheaded by Mrs. Ria Letigio, School Nurse, with the support of the Dr. Levi Atibula, Balamban Campus Director. It was actively participated in by the students, faculty members and non-teaching staff.
A symposium on Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Health, and First-Aid Awareness was also done with the aid of the aforementioned University partners. The symposium was a very good reminder for everyone to be extra-mindful of their health and diet as they strive for a better lifestyle.
Furthermore, different Awareness Programs were also held for the students last October 30-31, 2019 about Drugs; November 6 to 7, 2019 for Gender; and November 13 to 14, 2019, a forum on Magna Carta for Women. This series of programs was done courtesy of the Gender and Development (GAD) Office in CNU Main Campus.
Through the symposiums, students acquired new knowledge that allowed them to widen their perspectives on different matters. Hence, the activities and events are great avenues for students to be more aware, careful, and educated as the University fulfills its vision and mission. It is also a way of living life with a purpose that is to serve humanity in all goodness. (AMB)
