It was indeed a very productive day! Had the chance to visit our Bicolano kababayans in the evacuation centers to check on their health conditions then proceeded to the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Session Hall for the resumption of our public consultations for the Universal Health Care Bill.

As chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and Demography, it is my utmost priority to craft a measure that is reflective to the health needs of our people.

Thank you to my very supportive seatmates Senators Sonny AngaraJoel VillanuevaJuan Miguel ZubiriNancy Binay, also to my hardworking vice chair Sen. Risa Hontiveros, my counterpart from the house Rep. Angelina Tan, DOH Secretary Francisco Duque III, Governors, Mayors, LGU Officials, Barangay Health Workers and stakeholders in the medical sector for helping me out in this worthy activity.
