2011 in Review for That Health Rules

January 1, 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

London Olympic Stadium holds 80,000 people. This blog was viewed about 300,000 times in 2011. If it were competing at London Olympic Stadium, it would take about 4 sold-out events for that many people to see it.

What a way to END the YEAR

January 1, 2012

2011 has been very busy for me as i was inducted as the President of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists Philippines (AACE Philippines). My term will end by August 2012. This is the only year where I did not have a post every month.

One of the legacies I want to give and share during my presidency is the giving back our precious time to help and treat those in far flung barangays who cant afford the fee of a specialist. Thus was born the Goiter Obesity Osteoporosis and Diabetes (GOOD) doctors outreach and medical mission held end of November 2012. The group was able to treat and helped 2800 residents of Argao, Cebu. a total of 40 specialists from all over the country helped in the effort.

Overall…the feeling of having helped and served your fellowmen is what makes the true essence of what a doctor is all about.

Thanks 2011…. And more challenges ahead for 2012…
