The No. 1 Contributing Risk Factor

for global health is raised blood pressure - causing strokes, attacks, and other cardiovascular complications.


lives are lost each year needlessly due to elevated blood pressure


of people with high blood pressure know it

These deaths are PREVENTABLE……….And that’s the real tragedy

Baguio City --- With the intention to capacitate the health researchers of the consortium’s member institutions in terms of writing a winning project proposal, a Dual – Phase Writeshop Series on Project Proposal Preparation was mounted lately by the Committee on Research Management, Ethics, and Capacity Building.

Project proposals are aligned with the Regional Unified Health Research Agenda (RUHRA) and National Unified Health Research Agenda (NUHRA). This educational video was produced under the scientific direction of Bruno Guy, DVM and PhD in Human Biology, a scientist at Sanofi Pasteur and lead author of a dozen scientific publications in the field of dengue vaccine research. The digital images of human tissues, cells and vessels have been adapted from published scientific photographs and illustrations to help viewers understand the complexity of the immune response. This video is not meant to be a scientific representation of human cells and tissues. In particular, the relative scale of the cells, the dengue virus and the vaccine strains has been adapted to the educational objectives of this video.

Review suggests coffee and tea drinkers might have a lower risk of developing cardiac arrhythmias. Drinking coffee and tea every day may actually benefit people with heart troubles. New research has linked caffeine consumption from the two popular drinks to decreased rates of arrhythmias, or abnormal heart rhythms.

But the researchers warn against the consumption of energy drinks that contain high levels of caffeine for anyone with a pre-existing heart condition.

Arrhythmias cause the heart to beat too fast, slow or unevenly. Many clinicians advise patients with atrial or ventricular arrhythmias to avoid caffeinated beverages.

Thirty (30) completed research studies from the member institutions of the Cordillera Regional Health Research and Development Consortium (CRHRDC) were qualified for presentation in this year’s 7th Regional Health Research Conference. This annual event took place on April 27, 2018 at the University of the Cordilleras Auditorium, Governor Pack Road, Baguio City.

Through the combined efforts of the Research Utilization Committee (RUC) and Capacity Building Committee (CBC) of the Consortium in partnership with the University of the Cordilleras (UC), student and professional researchers were assembled to disseminate their accomplished health research studies with a breakdown of 14 research studies for Podium presentation and 16 research studies for Poster presentation.
