The Ruth Foundation partnered with The Asian Hospital’s Department of Occupational and Family Medicine for “Dispelling Myths through Palliative Care Education: An ELNEC Training Course”, held last October 12, 2013, at the Asian Hospital in Alabang. The event was held in celebration of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day — a “unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world.” The crash course was attended by doctors, nurses and caregivers, and gathered specialists such as Dr. Rumalie Corvera (Symptom Management), Dr. Roy Cuison (Ethics), Dr. Paul Nierva (Culture and Spirituality), and Dr. Maria Yamomoto (Communication) among others. A related event “Dispelling the Myths through Partnerships and Integration,” was also held on October 15 in the same venue. Invited guest speakers included Dr. Sue Marsden, Dr. Rhodora Ocampo, Ms. Eloi De Leon, and Dr. Manuel Medina. The event ended with the art exhibit “Painting My Feelings & Insights while  Gaining Victory Over Cancer”, featuring the works of the Project Pink support group and other cancer survivors.
