    we need more people like dr wen to become lawmakers in the government ( run for and win office ) to enact new laws that help society. We lose a good doctor but for some good laws its worth it.But you have to WIN office and wear out a few shoes. I believe
    that you have the intestinal fortitude to wear out many shoes and WIN office. I can hardly wait for this to happen !

    You're more than a doctor. You are a public servant too!!!

  4. Jamaica Columbres says

    You've just identified what the Philippines needs to terribly work on. Mass arrests dont work really. They dont address the root cause of the ills in the society. Pub health can mitigate the pressing issues in society
