Board Meeting: SEPTEMBER

This month's Board Meeting started with a draw lots among medical representatives who are participating in our 21st Postgraduate Course on September 21. The result of the draw lots will tell who gets the best seats when it comes to their arrangement in the booth area. This is done in order to be fair to everyone.
Aside from the draw lots, we also gave clear instructions regarding payments, receipts, and other important concerns.

After the medical representatives had left we continued with important matter on hand: the preparation for the Postgrad. I assigned people who will be in-charge of the different tasks that need to be accomplished. We ended the night with our weigh-out for FilFil Movement.

Clinic Visit Part II - Eastern Pangasinan

The second part of our clinic visit which was yesterday, September 7, went out well. In fact it was much better than the first one. As usual it was very tiring which I already expected but the thought of accomplishing the task felt very good. In fact very satisfying. It was something I never could have done without the help of the following Chapter officers (in alphabetical order):

1. Marissa Fernandez, M.D.
2. Leonardo Guerrero, M.D. DPAFP
3. Virginia Petrola , M.D.
4. Marijen B. Uy, M.D. FPAFP

Thank you, doctors! Your effort will never go unnoticed. Thank you also to Pharmadynamics, most especially to Carl whose area of assignment is not even Eastern Pangasinan.

Here are some pictures taken together with the hospitable doctors of Eastern Pangasinan:
