Aruga sa Batang may Cancer Initiative Implements its Telemedicine System in Bicol
The Aruga sa Batang may Cancer Initiative Project began the implementation of its telemedicine system in the Bicol Region on 13 September 2019. Instead of going to the Bicol Regional Training and Teaching Hospital (BRTTH) in Legazpi City, three participating pediatric cancer patients had their follow-up consultation with Dr. Vincent B. Aguilar, Pediatric Hema-Oncologist in BRTTH, at the Bacon District Health Unit in Sorsogon with the support of Bacon Health District Health Officer, Dr. Jazel Saddao-Calleja.
