Carrying the theme, “Los Baños Science Community: Coping with the COVID-19 Pandemic,” LBSCFI seeks to combat the pandemic by means of developing awareness among the Los Baños residents and its other participants about the available and approved vaccines, also giving them the opportunity to raise and have their questions answered. A webinar titled “Addressing the COVID-19 Infodemic: Straight from the Experts,” seeks to address the battle, which is not just about the sickness, but also the drowning amount of misinformation spread by those who seek to take advantage of the community’s panic.
LBSCFI stands true to its conviction as an organization that serves the public, by taking service a step further, realizing the benefits of holding its celebration while participants are at the safety and comfort of their homes. Details of this webinar will be posted on LBSCFI FB Page.
In celebration of its anniversary, LBSCFI also launched the “Spoken Word Poetry” contest which is open to constituents of its member agencies, and institutions within Los Baños, Laguna. This activity seeks to celebrate and appreciate the arts as well. Interested participants must take note of following:
