Congratulatory Message to Dr. Roger Tong-an

It gives us great pleasure to extend our warmest congratulations to Dr. Roger Tong-An on his appointment as the new Undersecretary for the Department of Health.

We know Dr. Tong-an's leadership over the last 20 years from his entrepreneurial endeavours to becoming the national President of the Philippine Nurses Association. He certainly brings fresh ideas and dynamism to the Department of Health.

Beta Nu Delta Nursing Society therefore looks at his appointment as a great opportunity to further strengthen the role of nursing in promoting a healthy Philippine society and in advancing the image of nurses' central role in delivering health care.

We therefore see great potential for mutuality and synergy with the work of the Beta Nu Delta Nursing Society.

We look forward to our collaboration under his new leadership role. We would like to take this opportunity to renew once again our best wishes for success in his new role.
