April 2016 FIRST QUARTER PROGRESS REPORT
The President’s message:
FEU-NRMF MTIAS ACTIVITY PROGRESS REPORT 2016 The year 2016, marks the beginning of a broader challenges. As a Society we made the efforts to be more visible in many ways. We want to continue what we believe serves the purpose of our existence as an organization. It is very important to know that it takes a lot of hard work, time and effort to bring positive results in every step we do. We want to make sure we have plans set up for the year.
Let me start by sharing with you few of the important events that happened the first quarter of this year.
A) January 20, 2016, Crowne Plaza Ortigas, I represented our Society in the celebration of the “Most Outstanding Alumni Awards” given to all deserving alumni of our beloved FEU-NRMF. Two BSMT alumni were chosen namely; Mr. Nardito Moraleta for his “Leadership”and Miss Nema F. Lintag for her “Career Achievements.” This is the first time that FEU-NRMF is giving this kind of awards. The next one will be after five years.
B) January 22, 2016, a very busy day that started in morning with a meeting with Atty. Abad, President of FEU-NRMF, Dr. Lennie Florentin Natividad, Dean of BSMT School and the officers of FEU-NRMF MTAS, to discuss the International Society’s current and future plans for the local students, scholarship programs and the school. Mr. Tony Ricafort, the immediate past president of FEU-NRMF MTIAS and I are very grateful for the opportunity to meet with them.
We met Noreen Eduardo Antonino, a top ten finisher in the recent 2015 RMT licensing examination and a recipient of a full ride scholarship in the School of Medicine as promised by the agreement set forth by Atty. Abad, President of FEU-NRMF and Tony Ricafort, past president of FEU-NRMF MTIAS. We visited the new FEU-NRMF building and attended the CE seminar provided by the school where Tony Ricafort was one of the speakers.
After the seminar, we attended the Alumni Homecoming reunion dinner and awards that night. It was a moment of joy and happiness to see our past president, Tony Ricafort received the “Most Outstanding Alumni” award given by the FEU-NRMF MTAS. At the same night, Tony and I presented the FEU-MTIAS 2015 Excellence Awards Certificates, with cash rewards to the following recipients:
1. Adrian Pineda – Presidential Excellence Award and a cash of $100 given by yours truly.
2. Monica Stephanie Moreno – Academic Excellence award for Bacteriology, $50 donated by Priscilla Guerzon Cruz
3. T J Jaula – Academic Excellence award for Chemistry 1/2, Clinical Microscopy-AUBF, Hematology ½ & Parasitology; $50 for each subject donated by; Virginia L. Hopkins, Carmelita Galang, Erlinda Yadao Parsons, Normina Lontoc Torres, Lily Cometa Beltran & Bert Gomez
4. Josbeth Banaag – Academic Excellence award for Histopathology & Mycology-Virology, $50 each subject donated by; Enriqueta R. Watkins & Danny Rufo
5. Kathlene Joy Labrador – a scholarship grant to pursue a Master’s Degree in Medical Technology. It is another step for local students to pursue a higher learning and is one of the prime objectives of the International Society.
6. To develop leaders through education is another hall mark of our Society – to fulfill this, two college students at the Carmelite College in Tinago, Siquijor are receiving a grant of $1000 each per year. Novelyn Jumawan and Nina Osco are on their first year towards achieving a teaching degree. Both are monitored by Sor Flor Pauline Duran Carm OL, Director of the Carmelite of Our Lady.
All of these scholarship funds are voluntarily being donated by our beloved, kind and generous fellow alumni. As a member of FEU-NRMF MTIAS, your kind support and donations are being well spent and properly structured to help local students and the community. On a professional level of our activity as an organization, we plan to make a difference. As your president, it is my belief that if we can be united in setting up plans and make it work, good things will come, not only for our own fellow alumni, but also to our colleagues in our own profession.
So, on April 9, 2016 at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, Las Vegas; a Continuing Education seminar was held sponsored by FEU-NRMF MTIAS and PAMET NOR-CAL, to raise funds for our local students and school. A well -received and informative lectures provided by our very own FEU-NRMF alumni namely, JUDY HENG, WALTER BAYUBAY, TESS CRISOSTOMO, Maj (Ret.) NESTOR GUERRERO & LUZ GUERRERO and LET NEGADO, a UST alumna who committed their time, knowledge and experience to all BSMT colleagues in our profession. All together we were supported by our fellow PAMET chapter officers and members from Nevada, Southern California, San Diego and Northern California. I do very much appreciate the presence of some familiar faces who are in the management positions; Laboratory Directors, Lab. Managers, Asst. Lab. Manager and supervisors of different facilities.
MAXI EDORA, our Vice President did an excellent job of coordinating this event. Little did we know, some of the alumni attendees are former students of one of our speakers. And a couple of the presenters are former professor of the lecturer. A time of bonding and reminiscing the good old days! The hard work paid off and now we look forward to our next challenge, our upcoming FEU-NRMF MTIAS Alumni reunion on October 14-16 at Gold Coast Casino.
MAXI EDORA will again be the event coordinator. We would like to invite all FEU-NRMF BSMT Alumni to join us. Let’s make this a grand event, a good time to bond, to network and be counted. Most of all, I urge you to be a member to help us get our Society moving forward. Check our website at www.feuinternationalmedetech.org for membership form and current activities. Look and follow us at in Facebook as well – FEU-NRMF Medical Technology International Society.
This is it for now.
