Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines Inc.

August 27, 2016

Being in a provincial area where specialty healthcare providers are limited and medicines are scarce, the foundation has chosen the Municipality of San Gabriel La Union as their beneficiary. The president of the Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines, Inc.,  herself, Dr. Ma. Flordeliz Abad- Casintahan, headed the medical mission where she was supported by 3 PDS accredited consultants, 23 resident physicians and 19 medical staff from the Department of Dermatology Jose R Reyes Memorial Medical Center. In coordination with the municipal health officer, Dr. Juan Alfonso R. Perez IV, approximately 103 patients were provided with free dermatologic consult including a number of patients from the mountainous areas of the municipality. Free medications and multivitamins were given to the patients. Dr. Ma. Christina Gulfan delivered a short lecture on basic skin care and common skin diseases as part of our holistic approach on cutaneous diseases.
