Paper Horns not also advisable for the New Year

First, when it comes to New Year, it is usually firecrackers that are of great concern for health officials. With good reason because from December 21-28, 173 firecracker-related injuries were already recorded which is an increase from the 5-year average.

A Published Article, Thank You Lord!

Having my first scholarly article published in vol. 44 no. 3 2010 issue of a reputable journal is a good way to cap my month before entering Christmas week.

Time to Pay Attention to HAIs

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Healthcare-associated infections or HAIs are infections that patients acquire during the course of receiving healthcare treatment for other conditions.

They can be deadly and economically-devastating. But they can be prevented.

In CIM, Year 2010 is the year for singers!

A good year for singers indeed for CIM.

December marked the return of the CIM choir who had their debut live performance during the CIM Alumni Day 2010 singing the liturgical songs during the Holy Mass, the Pambansang Awit, CIM Hymn and some intermission numbers.

See those smiling faces? That's because a lot in the audience liked their performance.

Well, the CIM choir has good reason also to be happy for one of their physician members is the 2010 Most Outstanding CIM Alumni Awardee (MOCA), the person who is also smiling in the picture, none other than Dr. Manuel Emerson Donaldo.

One of his colleagues promptly referred to him as, "A Doctor with A Song in His Heart".

He is known to have a golden singing voice on top of his other achievements as a rheumatologist, teacher, researcher and as the CIM Clinical Epidemiology Unit head.

He was handed the MOCA Award last Saturday, December 4 during the CIM Alumni Day celebrations.

(Hmmmmm....I'm also into singing...I'm also into research...I'm also into teaching.....Does this mean I'll be a MOCA in the future?Hahaha....Just kidding!)
