COVID-19 Outbreak: Message from Dr.Navarro, Chapter Chairperson of AMDA Philippines 2

Publication date:2020-06-23

Dr.Navarro Facilitating Web Seminar

As this pandemic crisis is reshaping our healthcare system with unprecedented strains on hospitals and clinics, we are seeing a balance between amazing acts of courage and dedication as our frontline healthcare workers lean in to take care of people across the nation and the world. At the same time, we are seeing a bright light focus on the challenges that we knew already existed in our healthcare system and the public health infrastructure. We now have an even more important opportunity to address these inequities and for us healthcare professionals, the opportunities to go beyond not only with what we can deliver but what we can learn as the circumstances are continuously evolving.

It has been done countless times and it will continue to be done, for the spirit of Filipino Bayanihan prevails against all calamities or any crisis. Despite imposed limitations, it is imbibed in our Filipino culture the value of giving and caring as much as we can. 

On behalf of AMDA - AMSA Philippines, San Pedro College - Davao and Global Health Pharmacy Network working together with our partner organizations and institutions, we would like to invite everyone to our webinar series which aims to provide different perspectives and a platform for multidisciplinary approach in addressing the impact of this global health crisis.
