TACLOBAN CITY – The Eastern Visayas Regional Health Research and Development Consortium (EVHRDC) has picked three studies related to prenatal lifestyle, remote learning by nursing students during the pandemic, and infection control in government hospitals as the region’s best health research studies.

During the conclusion of the regional health research symposium on Thursday, the three research studies were picked as winners in different categories that would represent the region in the National Health Research Award.

The winner in the oral research presentation (professional category) was the study on the correlation between the prenatal lifestyle among teenage pregnant women, and their obstetrical and neonatal outcome by Ryan Cris Jordan, medical specialist of Basey District Hospital in Basey, Samar.

For the student category, the winners were six students of the University of the Philippines Manila’s School of Health Sciences who studied the perceived psychological distress and academic burnout among nursing students during emergency remote learning during the pandemic.
