17th CDU Annual Research Poster Exhibit and Contest


The CDU – CDUH Research Council hosted the 17th CDU Annual Research Poster Contest from April 22 to 27, 2014. Posters showcasing the results of the studies of students of various departments in Cebu Doctors’ University were displayed at the CDU Atrium for the perusal of the students and staff alike.

The celebration served as a vehicle in transmitting the research outputs of the CDU students and in the process, cultivated the research culture of the institution. On April 22, 2014, Dr. Enrico B. Gruet, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Teresita Chiu, Maria Fe Abejar, CDU research coordinators, and faculty members opened the program and cut the ribbon.

Among the judges of the contest were Dr. Danny Largo, Director of the Research Office of the University of San Carlos, Maria Rachel Kim Aure, (PhD cand.) and Dr. Jucel Ann Jumao-As, School Physician of Cebu Normal University.
