The Philippine College of Physicians (PCP) is a national organization comprised by doctors who specialize in the care of patients 12 years old or 19 years old and above. They treat medical or non-surgical illnesses like hypertension, diabetes mellitus, heart disease, kidney diseases, infections, brain disease, allergies, gastrointestinal diseases, and infections. It is the umbrella organization of the different subspecialty societies or organizations that deal with more specific fields.
On March 2020, the PCP-Northern Luzon Chapter initiated a fund-raising campaign to help healthworkers, frontliners, and hospitals in accessing personal protective equipment, cash, food, water, and other donations that greatly aided in setting up plans and strategies to control and treat coronavirus infection and to continue in its efforts to contain the pandemic. Through this column, in behalf of the officers and members of PCP-Northern Luzon, we sincerely acknowledge and thank our donors for their kind support.
