I wish to extend my warmest greetings to all the delegates of our 20th PSMO Midyear Convention and 5th Virtual meeting with the theme: THE MEDICAL ONCOLOGIST: ON BECOMING AND BEYOND.
The experiences and challenges we have faced from the past years as Medical Oncologists have been difficult, both personally and professionally. But despite these challenges of the pandemic, we became stronger, wiser and kinder. It’s amazing how we have stayed connected, reached out and bonded together, caring and sharing the gift of life.
Here we are now, we have gained more wisdom individually and collectively as a society borne from those challenges, celebrated victories over defeats and became a significant part of the lives of people and patients who have come to us for solace. Those experiences became our greatest teacher, as we go BEYOND what we have BECOME.
I enjoin all of you to continue and renew our friendship during our 20th midyear convention. It will be a fruitful activity, for the program is a balance between scientific lectures and breather topics from our hectic clinic schedule.
God bless us all and Mabuhay ang PSMO!
