Each time the medical doctors mark the start of their Medicine Week, they would never miss honoring the country’s national hero who was also an ophthalmologist by profession.
The Davao Medical Society (DMS) in celebration of the Philippine Medical Association-National Medicine Week held their Wreath Laying Ceremony at the monument of Dr. Jose P. Rizal located at the Rizal Park on September 24.
They also heard an early Sunday Mass at San Pedro Cathedral in Davao City.
It was well-participated and attended by several groups and specialties or chapters including the past president like DMS past president Dr. Alfredo Abundo.
