"Since 2009, the Mu Sigma Phi Sorority of the UP College of Medicine has reached out to over a thousand women across the Philippines through its project, Mu Health Caravan Women Empowerment and Literacy through Health Education (W.E.A.L.T.H.) Campaign, which has already established a total of 13 legs in different provinces in the country. Integrating health lectures on various issues concerning women with screening procedures to battle women’s diseases in their early stages, the Mu Caravan promotes an empowering and holistic approach for women’s health. For its 4th leg this year, members of the Mu Sigma Phi Sorority travelled 631 km to visit Pamplona, Cagayan and serve over 200 women and Barangay health workers through a series of interactive lectures, as well as screening procedures such as breast examination and pap smear," notes a volunteers' website.
