Members of the Philippine Bisayan Society of Nevada in Las Vegas, Nevada distributed medicines to patients in the pediatrics ward in the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) last January 17, 2011.

This is the third year of the outreach program of the group who came to visit Cebu and joined the Sinulog celebration.

The Visayas Primary Health Care Services, Inc. through its staff member Dr. Erlinda Posadas facilitated the outreach activity by coordinating with the Department of Pediatrics through its Training Officer Dr. Lilibeth Espinosa and Chief Resident Dr. Elmer Lopez. Medicines were bought from the hospital pharmacy and included life-saving antibiotics, intravenous fluids and other essential medicines.

Ms. Marian K. Pearson headed the group whose members hail from different places in the Philippines including Pangasinan, Iloilo and Cebu and have lived in Nevada for several years now.

The group also met with VSMMC Chief of Hospital Dr. Gerardo M. Aquino, Jr.
