Raid Your Fridge: AC Health

Thu, 25 Jun 2020 14:00 - 15:30



[Pre-register to the Zoom Webinar Room here.]

Welcome to the 85th edition of Raid (T̶h̶e̶) Your Fridge featuring AC Health with Maria Carissa ("Rizzy") Alejandro, MD-MBA, as our resource speaker.

Our topic this month: "Returning From Quarantine," is a presentation on workforce re-entry protocols developed by AC Health and an opportunity for the startup community to raise questions and seek practical advice or tips that will help business leaders facilitate a safe, post-quarantine environment for employees and third-party partners. Specifically, the discussion will cover the following items:

- Workforce Re-Entry Framework to Consider

- Understanding Testing: Advantages, Limitations

- Ayala Group Corporate Testing Strategy

- Establishing Your Own Re-Entry Protocols

We do realize most Philippine-based startups are on "work-from-home" mode but we feel this is an important business continuity conversation to have while there's still time: please join us and raise questions around testing protocols, workplace readiness checklists, etc.

We also encourage tech startups with Philippine-based operations to attend this Zoom webinar on June 25th.

Our last two Raid The Fridge sessions covered topics that reflected the lockdown stage we found ourselves in: "Mental Wellness for Startups" at the start (April 29); "Startups and VCs in a Covid-19 Reality" in the middle (May 28); hence this month, we are covering workforce re-entry planning for startups.

We hope to see you: kindly register via Doorkeeper. Following, the Zoom webinar link will be sent to registered guests closer to the event date.

Also, if you have any questions that you'd like to share with our resource speaker in advance, do send us a note by replying to this message or thru

See you all on the 25th!

Your Fridgemaster,

Pia Bernal
