The UPMASA is proud to present the 16 recipients of the “Laptops for Doctors” by their UPMASA-Delaware and UPMASA Blackberry Project c/o UPMASA Michigan chapter, both coursed through the UP National Telehealth Center c/o Dr. Marcelo. Dr. JR Ong expressed his thanks through a letter which Dr. Arelyne Pacho Ramos, President of their Delaware Chapter shares with us:
” I am Dr. JR Ong, UP College of Medicine Class 2012, and one of the 16 recipients of the UPMASA Laptop to the Barrios.
In behalf of the 16 UP Medicine Doctors to the Barrios, let me thank you for the laptops and phone lines you donated to the municipalities that we serve. Most of the rural health units where we are deployed are unable to acquire these gadgets, which turned out to be very useful in communicating with our fellow doctors and in managing our respective health data.
As our way of expressing our gratitude, I am sending you these two photos (attached in this email), showing us, the 16 UP Doctors to the Barrios, with the laptops and the Blackberry Phones you donated. The photos were taken last May 11, during the last day of our two-week semiannual CME in Tagaytay. I am also requesting you to allow me to post these photos in a UPCM alumni Facebook group page.
