PASOBOLONG, ZAMBOANGA CITY
We are a team of Medical Students from Ateneo de Zamboanga-School of Medicine. Embedded in our Atenean hearts is a goal to provide quality healthcare to all regardless of ethnicity, race, or age. We look forward to strengthening our primary healthcare in communities as we carry on with our medical journey in barangay Pasobolong. As the community has been named, "Pasobolong" (which means the way from Bolong), may we become the Via (which means way in Latin) to allow people to recognize their rights in living a healthy life.
Join us! As we, Team Via, reach our goals for Barangay Pasobolong.
