General description:

ANTIBIOTICS is an activity organized by SCORP and SCOPH CIMSA UNS. This activity was held at Sasono Krida Warga Mangkubumen on Monday, December 18th, 2017. The event was attended by 34 residents of RT 3 RW 2 Mangkubumen Surakarta. This activity contains a talk show about BPJS regulation, including the importance of regular premium payments. The speaker of this talk show is the Head of Membership Division of BPJS Surakarta, which in this case has authority relating to JKN KIS registration, and the Head of Surakarta City Health Department. The material was delivered by a talk show so that the participants could immediately discuss and express their opinions about the BPJS regulation. We also conducted a free regular check of cholesterol, uric acid, blood sugar, and blood pressure. After the residents finished checking themselves, we gave a small souvenir to take home as a thank you. The program ended with the submission of certificates and gifts for speakers.
