Delivering on its mandate to improve and encourage the conduct of health-related researches in Region III, the Central Luzon Health Research and Development Consortium (CLHRDC) recently conducted two activities to achieve this objective.

The first activity entitled, Regional Forum on Inventions and ICT in Health was held last April 29, 2014 at the Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology (NEUST) in Cabanatuan City. It was aimed at providing the participants with possible research areas in ICT applications in health.
