Synchronizing the balance between public service and manageable play in the workplace, the PRC and the Professional Regulatory Boards (PRBs) set all the dancing shoes of their respective officials and personnel and gathered at the Bulwagang Nubla last June 19, 2024 for a harmonized Zumba. Motivating all the participating employees to have a “feel good, feel happy” workout and a boost for the day.

The Philippine Veterinary Medical Association (PVMA), VETS Love Nature, Philippine Animal Hospital Association (PAHA), and Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Maynila, through the leadership of PRC, also organized the P.R.E. (PVMA Rabies Elimination Initiative) program on the same day where an Anti-Rabies Mass Vaccination, Spay, Neuter to our respective to various domestic animals and pets were rendered. 

Capsulizing the third day, a Rhythm and Rhyme Contest was held spearheaded by the Philippine Association of the Professional Regulatory Board Members, Inc. (PAPRB) where PRC Regional Offices and PRC Central actively joined the said song and dance competition.  Thus, the love for music, ingenuity, and creativity has been showcased during the latter part of the third-day celebration.

The fourth-day celebration, on one hand, focused on promoting Professional Health and Wellness among the officials and personnel of the PRC, together with the participating PRBs, private companies, and professional volunteers, the PRBs of Dentistry, Medical Technology, Medicine, Midwifery, Nursing / PNA, Nutrition and Dietetics, Optometry, Pharmacy, Respiratory Therapy, PT / OT, and Radiology Therapy had put their attendance at the Bulwagang, Nubla last June 20, 2024.  Alongside the PRBs were the APOs / AIPOs; such as the Association of Nursing Service Administrators of the Philippines (ANSAP), Philippine Academy of Family Physicians (PAFP (Medicine), Philippine Association of Medical Technologists, Inc. (PAMET), Philippine Pharmacists Association Inc. (PPhA), Philippine Dental Association (PDA), Philippine Dental Hygienists Association (PDHA), and Association of Respiratory Care Practitioners Philippines (ARCPP).     

Headed by the Philippine Association of Medical Technologies (PAMET) President and in partnership with PRC, comprehensive health screenings were conducted focusing on Complete Blood Count (CBC) and other medical-related services. Likewise, the dental services led by the Professional Regulatory Board of Dentistry and the Manila Dental Chapter (MDC), the Philippine Dental Hygienist Association (PDHA), and the National University (NU) benefited the employees with dental hygiene kits including oral prophylaxis.  A systematic assessment of the overall nutritional status of the selected employees was also initiated during the day with the participation of the Centro Escolar University (School of Nutrition and Hospitality Management) volunteers.  On the other hand, the Association of Nursing Service Administrators of the Philippines (ANSAP) and PRB of Respiratory Therapy rendered Blood Glucose Testing and electrocardiogram services respectively. 

All the selected activities and medical and health services were enjoyed and witnessed by respective regions through their virtual attendance and participation. With intensified vigor and sturdy optimism, the PRC shall continue its spirit strong and determined today, for the next 51 years and beyond.
