     echocardiograph machine with 3D imaging through 384 Kbps ISDN line
     during your mini-workshop at the UPOU/Manila.

     Pls investigate the availability of echocardiograph machine and the ISDN
     line, and let me know.

Dear Dr Utsumi:

How are you doing?

I would just like to find out what your plans are for
the possible conference in Manila.

After my deanship at the UP Open University (which
ended last April), I was appointed as an Assistant to
the Chancellor for Administration in the University of
the Philippines Manila. Our university is the
National Telehealth Center and we would like to be
actively involved in international telemedicine/telehealth projects.

I would appreciate any information on your activities
and how we could be involved in your projects.

Warmest regards!

Subject: RE: Telemedicine demo at workshop in Manila

Dear Tak,

When is the workshop in Manila? I and my group (UP College of Medicine
Medical Informatics Unit) would also like to join the workshop since we will
be working on telemedicine projects this coming year. This year we already
started utilizing the new UP Manila fiberoptic backbone in a
telemedicine/telementoring demo in Emergency Medicine.

Dear Tak,
Welcome home.  I apologize for being so out of touch.  Yes...I'm too busy
and my mother is ill so I've been dealing with a lot of things.

Congratulations on the Sloan meeting.  This is very exciting and I look
forward to hearing the results.  It would be very exciting to have a chance
to work with them on this effort.  I'm in the process of preparing 2001
appropriations requests for Senator Burns along these same lines.  I will
talk with you more about this effort.  Since everyone is interested in
broadband demonstration and application projects, I think that we will have
a good chance of funding this year.  You might mention to Sloan that we are
working on multiple sources of funding for this effort.  As you know, we
have some funding from Citicorp that has been committed but we have not yet
received the funds.

I'm wondering about the NSF proposal...are you still interested in moving
forward with requests for funding a meeting in the Philipines or another
location?  If so, that should be submitted before too long.

Again, welcome home.
