Just didnt realized it that I have not updated my site for almost a month now.

To give myself an excuse to this hibernation… as host to the recent First Joint meeting of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist- US and the Philippine Chapter…it was no small task.   The preparations leading to the convention making sure that evrything was in place were enormous.

The meeting was held in Mactan Shangrila last August 13 to 16 and we had 7 invited foreign speakers…not company sponsored but AACE US board members as our plenary speakers. 

 To sum it up: the event was well attended by almost 500 delegates with foreign guests from Singapore.  The Board memebrs inclduing DR Hossein Gharib my mentor at the Mayo Clinic, as the Past President of the society as well as Dr Allgeo, the Chair of the AACE International Committee were all impressed.  All we got were praises form the delegates form the great scientific program to the excellent teachers and professors.  All hard work paid off and due to the great teamwork of the AACE Philippine chapter board members headed by our President Dr H Gomez.

See you all again In Manila next year for the annual meeting to be held at Sofital Hotel.

Immediately after the event, I enjoyed few more days of rest and travel to Prague, Krakow Poland then to Budapest. It was indeed a great trip to enjoy and learn about the Nazi camps and its history.  Plus Prague and Budapest had their own rich cultural history.

So guys, am back… sorry for those who visited my site and havent been answered regarding their querries and comments.  Will do that soon!
