In celebration of her 67th Foundation Anniversary, Liceo de Cagayan University through the Office of the Vice President for Research, Extension, Planning, and Innovation provided the senior citizens of Baranggay Macasandig with free health services, which is an integral part of the University’s community extension program.

Assisting a pool of medical doctors in the administration of the health services were the students from the different colleges (Medicine, Nursing, Rehabilitation Sciences, Radiologic Technology, Pharmacy, and Medical Technology, Criminology).
