The Future Earth Philippines Program (FEPP), Bicol Consortium for Health Research and Development (BCHRD), and Metro Manila Health Research and Development Consortium (MMHRDC) is organizing a Consultation Workshop on Nature-based Health Products Research and Development Program for Bicol Region to be hosted by Ateneo De Naga University on October 17-18, 2019.


The consultation workshop will be facilitated by the team of Dr. Lourdes J. Cruz of Future Earth Philippines Program (FEPP) under the National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) with the goal to improve the country’s capacity to attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). Their strategy is to establish Knowledge to Action Programs that will effectively translate relevant knowledge for the achievement of the Philippine environmental, social and economic sustainability for the benefit of all its citizens. The program also aims to structure the research training of the participants who work on Nature-based Health Products and capacitate the region’s researchers.

The Department of Health - Center for Health  (DOH-CHD) Bicol through the Bicol Consortium for Health Research and Development (BCHRD) conducted a one-day Orientation and Pre-selection of applicants for the Bicol Health Research and Training (Bicol HeaRT) Program Batch 2 last October 1, 2019, held at RC Daguinsin Hall, DOH Compound, Bagtang, Daraga. Albay.

This activity aims to select 20 participants and finalize the schedule and contract of the scholars. A total of 30 participants attended the said event from the different member institutions of the consortium including Ateneo de Naga University (AdNU), Camarines Norte State College (CNSC), Department of Health 5 (DOH), Partido State University (PSU), Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges (CSPC), Central Bicol State Univerisity of Agriculture (CBSUA), Bicol University (BU), Bicol Medical Center (BMC), Bicol Region General Hospital and Geriatric Medical Center (BRGHGMC), and University of Saint Anthony (USANT).

During the activity, Dir. Montealegre emphasized that the participants should have a long term commitment to research because making and conducting research takes time.
