With the recently concluded study by the Medical Services Team, it was determined that hypertension is the number one most common illness that ECIQUEST employees endure. About 69% of the employees are classified hypertensive -- the very reason it is the most sought consultation at the clinics and hospitals.
To properly manage the alarming incidence of hypertension, ECIQUEST Co. Inc., in partnership with Medicard, conducted a health talk regarding hypertension. It was brief, yet very substantial discussion facilitated by Dra. Lissa Theresa Resurreccion. The focus of the short lecture includes the symptoms of hypertension and its management, and ways to maintain a normal blood pressure. It was also highlighted that lifestyle modification is the key to prevent hypertension.
