Hosted by the Central Luzon Health Research and Development Consortium (CLHRDC) with the Department of Science and Technology III (DOST III), this year’s PNHRS Week theme is “Health Research: Responding to Challenges towards National Recovery and Resiliency”.
The celebration will be conducted on 08-12 August 2022 in a hybrid format of face-to-face and virtual conference. The face-to-face activities will be held at Clark Marriot Hotel, Pampanga, to be attended by a total of 250 persons and streamed via Zoo, and Facebook Live for the virtual participants.
