“Be a hero. Save lives. First aid is for everyone, everywhere.”
This is one of the mantra of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
Indeed, one who is equipped with the knowledge of performing first aid to anyone in need is a hero indeed.
Last February 24, Glenmark Philippines, Inc., an affiliate of a leading research-based pharmaceutical company Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, conducted a “First Aid for Kids Training” today at SMX Convention Center, SM Aura, Taguig City, through its brand on wound care, Foskina Ointment.
Through the training, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, Glenmark aims to increase awareness about the value of knowing the application of basic first aid, particularly among parents and school facilitators of pre-school and kindergarteners.
Kids in this age range are usually prone to cuts, scrapes, and burns, acquired either at home, school or other areas like malls, parks, and playgrounds where they are most physically active. Thus, it is of utmost importance that parents and school facilitators are knowledgeable when it comes to applying first aid as the “first responders” on proper wound care management and in other cases of emergencies.
Among the highlights of the training will cover wound care and burn management, allergies and bites, and CPR and choking. The lectures and hands-on demos will be led by the team behind Early Intervention Management, Dr. Dan Luchangco from the Emergency Department of the Makati Medical Center and Dr. Joy Sto. Domingo, Chairman of the VRP Emergency Medicine Consultants.
Media partners for the event include Manila Bulletin (Digital), Channel Hue, Experience Travel and Living magazine and Moms & Kids Magazine.
