St. Anne's gets SMART
Submitted By Myrla Raymundo
It all started when a woman attending the 8 a.m. Mass fainted. Mellie von Giese, a parishioner and nurse came up with the idea of creating a medical group at St. Anne.
She reasoned that since many parishioners are doctors and nurses why not organize them to help in this kind of situation? That was the beginning of S.M.A.R.T. (St. Anne Medical Action Response Team). St. Anne Catholic Church of approximately 5,000 family members headed by Pastor Geoffrey Baraan is now ready to help if medical emergencies arise. Workshops on Health Awareness will be presented to parishioners periodically. The first workshop was held June 22, 2013.
SMART members include: Mellie von Giese, Coordinator; Dr. Claire Segui; Dr. Noel Panlilio; Dr. Dante Dizon; Dr. Karen Segui; Rachel Romero; Zeny Morales; Jovita Marquez; Dr. Michael Viernes; Fanny Panlilio; Estella Dacasin; Gloria Ramos.
