MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, July 25 (PIA) – Grooming local doctors in hope to install permanent medical officers here, the local government unit of Mambajao is offering scholarship assistance to constituents eager to pursue studies and careers in the field of medicine.
The LGU initially sets aside P400,000.00 fund for the program, with corresponding approved ordinance.
Mayor Maria Luisa D. Romualdo invites interested students to take this opportunity, not only to further themselves but to be of service to the community as well.
This is hoped to address the recurring problem of finding doctors that are willing to work and stay in public health service.
Meanwhile, a P1.5 million budget was also appropriated this year from the Special Education Fund (SEF) to strengthen the public elementary and secondary schools.(JCV/PIA)
