4th Community Exposure

Team Tuboran had the 4th community exposure from June 22 to July 21, 2018. The purpose of this exposure is to initiate the implementation of our different health plans for issues regarding water services, the community’s solid waste management, prevalance of high risk individuals for non-communicable diseases, high percentage of malnutrition among children under 5 years old and the high percentage of home-based deliveries.

According to the Proposed Barangay Development Plan of Barangay Tuboran (2007), in the early times, the barangay was once named “Bayogan” by a native Subanen in reference to the abundant “bayog” and bamboo plants.

Years had passed, and its name was changed to “Tuboran”.  Folk stories tell of a Subanen teacher named R. Tolero who replaced the name after finding out that bayog and bamboo plants were no longer abundant. Its new name was then adapted from the numerous springs found in the area.

A Month After Community

Maayong buntag!

Magila-ila lang sad mi.

Translated to
“Good morning!”
“Let’s get to know each other.”

It has been a month since we came back from the community exposure. We collated the data we have gathered and presented a community profile of Tuboran to a panel of doctors All was well but we have noted of the recommendations of the panel.

And then we celebrated the holidays and now, back to learning in our white coats. We will be back in the community  in roughly 5 months. I am excited to see Nanay and Kap, all the children, the kagawads, the habal-habal drivers, and most especially the lolo’s and lola’s of Tuboran.

When we get back, we will be filled with new learning to be of service to the people. Along with this, we are also brainstorming on our possible activities to engage the people on our drive to make Tuboran healthier.
