The City Health Office headed by Dr. Rodel Agbulos in coordination with civic organizations has lined up various activities in a bid to drum up the city government’s awareness campaign against tuberculosis on Sunday.

Dr. Agbulos said the series of activities dubbed “Walk, Run and Bike” will kick off with Zumba at 5 a.m. on Sunday at Paseo del Mar.

From Paseo, the participants will walk, run and bike at 6 a.m. towards the Vitaliano Agan Coliseum in Tetuan for the commemorative program in line with this year’s Lung Month celebration.

Expected participants are representatives from the academe, government agencies, non-government organizations, police, military and all other organizations supportive of the city’s campaign against tuberculosis.

The Rotary Clubs of the city, the Department of Health and the Zamboanga Hermosa Tuberculosis Council are also supporting the activity.

Recall, the Lung Month 2013 is anchored on the theme “Tuldokan ang TB, Ikalat ang Tamang Impormasyon Hindi and Diskriminasyon,” which focuses on the mitigation of tuberculosis (Tubercle Bacillus), a common infectious disease caused by strains of mycobacteria that usually attack the lungs of victims. — Vic Larato
