Mr. Nhan led a group of staffs arrived at the house of former Director of Tumor Hospital Professor Nguyen Chan Hung. Party Chief Nhan highly valued Professor Hung’s positive attitude. Professor Hung has been one of those who contributed greatly to push up HCMC to be the country’s largest cancer center. All contributions will be gratefully received.
On the same day, the group continued to drop by former Principal of Medicine University Professor Dang Van Phuoc. While talking with Professor Phuoc, Mr. Nhan showed his gratitude to Professor Phuoc’s substantial contribution during 45 years in the position.
