The students organization with members coming from different nursing schools including University of Bohol and Holy Name University in Tagbilaran City has been very active in medical missions and community outreach programs initiated by the VPHCS.
The 16 students also had a group discussion on the adverse effects of the reclamation project in Panglao and visited the affected families.
