In time for its 175th anniversary, Watsons held a joint medical mission with SM Foundation on May 6 at SM City Sta. Mesa.
Entitled ‘AnniverSaya, 175 Healthy, Happy Families’, the medical mission provided free health services such as medical consultations, dental check-ups, basic laboratory tests and medicines to the participants present. Additionally, the first 175 families who registered received special gift packs from Watsons.
