City of Surigao promotes health awareness among local youth


The City Health Office, under the guidance of Dr. Benjielita Notada, along with Gerivy Lipio, Nutrition Coordinator, conducted impactful Health Awareness Campaigns for High School and Elementary Students in Barangay Anomar and Barangay Sukailang.
