The Central Luzon Health Research and Development Consortium (CLHRDC) had a fruitful participation in the celebration of the 8th Philippine National Health Research System Week held on August 12-14, 2014 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu. Hosted by the Central Visayas Consortium for Health Research and Development (CVCHRD), the 3-day celebration focused on the theme: “Research and Innovation in Health for Disaster and Emergency Management”, and was highlighted by technical sessions regarding the management of disasters and emergencies – preparations, actions, tools and role of social media.
Aside from the fora, the 8th PNHRS Week Celebration was also an avenue to recognize outstanding health researches both by student and professional researchers alike through oral and poster research presentation competitions.
