Be part of the H.E.R.O.

On May 1, 2011, you will see your doctors outside their clinics and the hospital to spend time with you on the road. Over 1,000 doctors will gather for PCPF Run with Doctors. Philippine College of Physician Foundation (PCPF) is the largest foundation in the country consisting of internist in the Philippines.

Run with Doctors is a fund raiser for the foundation. The race is to generate funds for their research and advocacies. To disseminate information to the public towards health awareness. Did you know that one of the common problems now in our country is obesity? Another program that the foundation is into is the Health and Education Reform Order (H.E.R.O). These aims to educate schoolchildren and family of preventive health measures.

When I attended the launch for the race, first time i heard the word Pharmacovigilance.

Pharmacovigilance (fahr″mә-ko-vij´ĭ-lәns) is meant to cover the collection of information on adverse drug reactions(ADRs),at pre-and post-marketing stage,the scientific evaluation of these reports and the regulatory decisions which may have to be taken following their analysis.

For a simple understanding is of how much dosage should be considered to treat a patient.

For this good advocacies, let's run together with our Doctors.
