Public Health Week 2019

Through April 1st to April 5th, the PHP celebrated Public Health Week with the theme Creating The Healthiest Nation: For Science, For Actions, For Health.  Educational interventions on high schools in the south of Puerto Rico and in the Ponce Health Sciences University were carried out in order to promote the prevention of cancer amongst young people and adolescents in Puerto Rico. During the week, the PHP had three guest speakers: Dr. Anna Di Marico, Colonel Florencio Polanco De Jesús, and Dr. Johnny Rullán.  The Public Health Week ended with a clinical health fair and community service, which included vaccinations, mammography, an HIV test, a high blood pressure test and glucose test, Zumba class, and an educational conference about “Differences between bioequivalent and generic medicines” and “Highway Safety”.
