CCDC entered into a partnership with Cordillera Hospital of the Divine Grace (CHDG) for its annual medical check-up for employees.
The collaboration started December 10, 2021 and subsists until present. CHDG provides laboratory tests and medical consultation to ensure the well-being of employees, which includes teaching and non-teaching personnel.
CCDC is a member of the Cordillera Regional Health Research and Development Consortium which is a research consortium for the dissemination and utilization of research results to improve health and well- being.
The consortium also provides avenue for research funding on health research publications as well as trainings for faculty.
The consortium started in 2011 and exists until present. Below is a portion of the copy of the MOA signed by CCDC President James Malaya.
CCDC entered into a collaboration with the Department of Health – Cordillera to cater to the health and well- being of pregnant mothers. A license to operate a birthing clinic was granted to CCDC in 2017 and is renewed yearly in compliance with the DOH regulations.
The establishment of the CCDC Birthing Clinic was initially on academic grounds in line with the opening of the BS Midwifery program. However, when the COVID-19 pandemic came, the school opted to be responsive to the crisis by expanding its operations to cater to the maternal health care needs of the public that cannot be availed by some in hospitals due to fully occupied wards.
During the COVID-19 crisis, the birthing clinic operated complying with health protocols laid down by regulatory bodies such as the Department of Health, the Inter-Agency Task Force, and the Local Government Unit. Its transformation to a crisis responsive facility was brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and it shall continue to transcend beyond COVID-19 into a facility for maternal and child health care at all times and for all.
CCDC engaged a Memorandum of Agreement with Sitio Banayakeo, Poblacion, Atok, among the disadvantaged communities in Benguet province to cater the various services needed by the community.
Among the services provided are implementation of programs and outreach activities that pertain to health and well-ebeing, strengthening Family relations, proper handwashing, proper nutrition, and basic personal hygiene.
The outreach also includes provision of medical intervention with the help of volunteer students and employees.
CCDC conducted stress debriefing and psychosocial support to children and employees of Cayapes Barrio School, Kapangan town located among the disadvantaged communities in Benguet province.
Psychosocial support is the process of facilitating and strengthening resilience within individuals, families and communities to recover from and adapt to critical adversities with potentially damaging long-term impacts. Psychosocial support thus promotes the restoration of social cohesion and set-up.
For the past 2 years, due to the Corona Virus pupils are not allowed to go to school and go out because of the restrictions and for safety purposes. Pupils are confined inside their home, playing cellphones, watching tv the whole day, play and sleep anytime. Now, pupils need to adjust and adapt to the demands (New Normal) both academically and socially.
Majority of their time are spent in adjusting in time and new rules. Hence, the activity that conducted re-focused on the social aspect of their life.
Among the activities are Basic Self-Defense classes and focused-group discussions with various activities for the children that involved the development of fine motor skills like coffee painting and paper folding.
