A local chief executive recently lauded Governor Amado I. Espino, III for bringing the “I Love Pangasinan” Kalusugan Caravan in the farthest barangay of Pangasinan.
“Maraming salamat Gobernador Espino na narating nyo ang pinakaliblib na barangay ng Infanta para magbigay ng serbisyo” said Mayor Marvin Martinez during the 23rd leg of the mobile health caravan held at barangay Pita in Infanta on January 31.
Appreciating the effort of the provincial administration to reach out the far-flung Pita and Babuyan villages of Infanta, which are also the farthest barangay in Pangasinan, Mayor Martinez noted that Governor “Pogi” Espino is the second provincial chief executive to visit the two farflung barangays. The first, he said, was predecessor, former Pangasinan Governor and now 5th district Representative Amado T. Espino, Jr.
“I wish that the health caravan led by the provincial government will benefit more Pangasinenses,” Martinez said, as he urged his townsmates to constantly support the advocacies, particularly the health programs launched by the provincial administration.
The governor joined the Kalusugan Caravan team which is headed by his wife, First Lady Karina Padua-Espino, to manifest his sincerity to reach out to far-flung villages in the province that need most quality and professional medical services.
Services offered to residents during a health caravan include: supplemental feeding program, medical consultations, dental and laboratory services, malaria control program, tuberculosis control program, skin diseases consultation, flu vaccination, RCA, hygiene kits distribution, dengue control program, potable water access and rabies control program. /Mark Gerry Naval Oblanca
