Pandemic

The pandemic situation has shown the need for the relationship of health personnel with citizens, but also behavioral habits that improve health. Not only in terms of physical exercise or food. The emotional one must also have special attention that can be worked on. The pandemic situation has also affected emotional stability.

The participation of health professionals and entities must motivate that social prescription is more important than prescriptions.

With the meeting in the different facilities between medical staff and citizens, it also aims to rrecover a contact that has been broken by the pandemic situation that affects attendance. That contact is the one that also intends to be reactivated with the health fair.

The conference, with the name of Apropem-nos, arises from a proposal by the Community Health driving force, which is made up of entities and residents of El Vendrell who work to promote initiatives to improve health.

In addition to this contact with the health professionals, the neighbors can learn about the offer of the entities that promote actions for a healthy life and that they will set up tents in the square of the primary assistance center. At the same point, workshops on health and physical and emotional well-being will be organized by professionals.

There will also be activities in the Eina building (Camí Reial street), in the Botafoc CAP, in the Record gym for physical activity sessions or on both days there will be health walks led by professionals.
