PAFP Annual Convention
Thursday, March 22, 2007
The first week of March had been a very hectic week for me and my husband. It was the 46th Annual Convention of the Philippine Academy of Family Physician (PAFP). Being the President of the Pangasinan chapter, my husband had to attend to a series of activities in preparation for the said occasion. For one, our chapter had been assigned to sing the PAFP Hymn (photo on the right) during the opening ceremonies. This alone made the one week preparation before the occasion a very busy one. My husband was not contented with "pwede na". He wanted it perfect. So the group had to practice until wee hours of the morning just to make everything as prefect as possible. And the result? We were able to prove to the audience that Pangasinenses are really good singers.

Several pre-convention activities were scheduled a day before the 3-day convention at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC). Among them was the poster making contest where our group was a contestant. It was just so bad I failed to get a picture of our entree. It was a picture of 2 bangus swimming upward under the water. At the center of the 2 fishes is the PAFP logo. We placed the pictures taken during all the chapter's activities inside the bubbles produced by the 2 bangus. It was really nice!

The 3-day convention was filled with comprehensive lectures from notable physicians all over the country. The knowledge we gained out of these lectures was incomparable. We may have lost some income from being away from our clinics for a few days but we were able to arm ourselves and gain more knowledge as we go back and face our patients.

The closing ceremony and induction of the chapter presidents (photo below) concluded the 3-day event. It was held in Sofitel Philippine Plaza on the evening of March 3. This year is my husband's second term as the president of Pangasinan chapter. Though most of our colleagues had gone home and we also were very eager to home by then, we were left with no choice but to attend the ceremony.
