INFOcus: Filipino Skin

Last July 6-8, 2018, Skin and Cancer Foundation held their 8th Post Graduate Course, entitled "INFOcus: Filipino Skin" in Mariveles, Bataan! Activities included a medical mission, a day of interesting lectures, a fellowship night, and a tour around the nostalgic ambiance of Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. It was an enlightening weekend that juxtaposed culture and innovation, and made one proud to be Filipino!
