mWell Helps Thousands of Filipinos in Historic Nationwide Virtual Medical Mission

by , in

 Filipinos no longer need to bear the burden of outdated medical care. The whole country was given respite from the worries of getting quality medical care with National mWellness Day by mWell, the country’s only fully integrated health and wellness mobile app.


Kara David, founder of Project Malasakit, hosted the online event in the National mWellness Day culminating activity states, “As caretakers, guardians, or as a parent, the anxiety and challenges of getting quality medical care is heightened especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first ever virtual medical mission by mWell PH brings health and wellness closer to people. Nakakalungkot, subalit totoong may kakulangan sa healthcare para tugunan ang pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan.” 

 


(“It’s disheartening to note that there is a lack of quality healthcare needed by Filipinos.”)

 

On September 4 and 5, 2021, the first nationwide online medical mission in the Philippines took place via the mWell app by Metro Pacific Health Tech Corporation (MPHTC), which provided free consultations with primary care and specialized doctors.

 

Despite hectic schedules in the medical field at this time of crisis, a number of doctors willingly gave their time and expertise to a bigger mission, and this is giving the gift of wellness to Filipinos. With the medical community, mWell is transforming the country’s digital health landscape by providing professional consultations, medical diagnosis, care and treatment plans.

 

A volunteer obstetrician and gynecologist, Dr. Melani Camarillo Espino explained how she adjusted to the pandemic by transitioning from limiting her clinic calls to telemedicine so that she can be contacted anytime, anywhere. Using the mWell platform, her initial apprehension was cleared because she discovered how user-friendly it is and technical support was prompt. She recommended it to her patients. 

 

“Using mWell is just like making a private house call with my patients from the comforts of their homes. The flow of my virtual consultations are smooth, plus I gained more patients through the app.” said Dr. Espino. Being one of the volunteers for National Wellness Day, she wants to reach out to more patients even in remote areas who are afraid to go out, and provide quality and accessible health care via the use of mWell app.

 

Building momentum to accelerate positive change in healthcare, mWell now features 24/7 doctor on-call services. Filipinos can consult with a doctor anytime through the mWell app with online teleconsultations from a roster of general practitioners and specialty doctors nationwide. Get much-needed access to health professionals from the safety and comfort of home.

 

Download the mWell app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. For more information, visit https://www.mWell.com.ph.





Best regards,





We will triumph with the help of God who will trample down all our foes.(Psalm 108:14)

YouTube FanFest 2021: A three-day celebration of Filipino talent and diversity

YouTube FanFest 2021: A three-day celebration of Filipino talent and diversity

P-pop group SB19 and Andree Bonifacio surprised fans with a powerful collaboration featuring the boy band’s hit singles ‘Mana’ and ‘Bazinga’ during The Finale

 

It’s no secret that Filipinos are social beings and now, at a time when forging human connections have never been more important, YouTube returned for the second virtual edition of YouTube FanFest (YTFF) that provided not only entertainment from home, but also a celebration of Filipino diversity.

 

Held over three days from August 27 to 29, YTFF 2021 saw how YouTube continues to be a place where diversity, equity, and inclusion reign. Here are some of the highlights of this year’s YTFF:

 

Not just one, but three days worth of entertainment
YouTube FanFest is usually a one-day show, but this year, fans were surprised with a three-day episode namely Island Life, Everyone is Beautiful, and The Finale--each day centered around the wealth of diversity among YouTube creators.

A visit to the Queen City of the South

YouTube creators from Cebu joined FanFest for the first time, kickstarting this year’s show. Medyo Maldito and Snake Princess, Raphiel Shannon, and The Juans serenaded the audience, while Indai Allyn left viewers craving for the mouthwatering dishes like Kinilaw na bariles (Tuna ceviche), Chicken inasal with palapa (Grilled chicken with traditional Maranao spices), and biko (Sweet rice cake made with coconut milk and brown sugar). G-FORCE closed the episode with a showstopping performance of their original song, “Sumayaw.”

Beaming with Pride

YouTube has always been a space that welcomes everyone regardless of color, ethnicity, orientation, or background. This year’s show was definitely a display of the platform’s inclusivity as we saw more members of the Pride community joining the show including Mikey Bustos as the host, as well as lifestyle and beauty creators AboutRAF, Madam Ely, and Tita Krissy Achino who took part in a Project Runway-esque challenge.

True to YouTube’s mission of diversity, equity, and inclusion, this year’s FanFest continued to see representation from the Pride community, among which were lifestyle creators About RAF and Madam Ely who joined beauty creator Raiza Contawi in hosting the second episode, Everyone is Beautiful.

 

Redefining entertainment

YouTube FanFest undoubtedly brings forward a variety of song and dance performances. But as we all found various hobbies and channels to binge on over the quarantine periods, YTFF showed that entertainment goes beyond on-stage performances with a series of cooking shows graced by Chef RV Manabat and Chef Tatung of Simpol, along with costume design and makeup challenges.

Powerhouse collaborations

Fans always look forward to the exciting collaborations during the show and this year is no exception. P-Pop sensation SB19 shared the stage with Andree Bonifacio, performing a powerful rendition of ‘Mana’ and ‘Bazinga’ during The Finale.

A stage for Filipino ingenuity

Local content creators showcased their world-class talents with their hit originals. Lesha performed her latest single, ‘Sun Moon Rising & Karma, while Reneé Dominique sang crowd-favorites ’Could I Love You Any More’ and ‘The Rose. Raphiel Shannon gave a soothing performance of her songs ‘O’ and ‘Hiling', and Zack Tabudlo serenaded the audience with ‘Binibini’ and ‘Nangangamba’. Fans of The Juans were treated to heartwarming performances of 'Hatid', 'Hindi Tayo Pwede', 'Umaga', 'Atin Ang Mundo', and 'Dulo'.

It was all about celebrating togetherness

At the end of it all, YouTube FanFest has always been about bringing people together which remains ever crucial at these times. More local creators joined the diverse line-up of the three-day show including lifestyle and beauty creators Hazel Quing, itsclaudineco, Raiza Contawi, and ThatsBella; YTFF regulars Ranz Kyle and Niana Guerrero together with their adorable sibling Natalia Guerrero; as well as Benedict Cua and Team Lyqa!

 

This year’s YouTube FanFest may have ended but those who missed the show or just can’t get enough of the three-day fun can head over to the YouTube FanFest channel to discover (or rediscover) what makes YTFF a one-of-a-kind celebration.



 



Best regards,





We will triumph with the help of God who will trample down all our foes.(Psalm 108:14)
