Zdravstvena edukacijaOn 29 November 2013, health education workshop took place. Dr. Olga Angelovska gave a lecture on women's health with a focus on the reproductive health of women. The workshop was designed in the form of short presentations by the doctor, after which she provided advice while answering the questions of attendees on specific issues on the maintenance of pregnancy and hygiene and nutrition of infants.
