The Great APO Outreach of 2013

By:  Melanie Joan Bergonio

In 2009, I read an article on the status of the oral health of the Filipinos.  It said that it was at an alarming state.  The National Oral Health Survey back then revealed that 97 per cent of first-graders in public schools in the Philippines suffer from tooth decay.   Programs, through the Department of Education, were initiated in most public schools.  Oral health, beginning with brushing of the teeth, and hand washing were taught and incorporated with the curriculum at most schools to curb the incidence of cavities.

APO Regional Congress, Bohol, Philippines

IMPORTANT UPDATE AS OF OCTOBER 19, 2013:

Dear APO members,

Last October 14, Bohol experienced a 7.2 magnitude of earthquake resulting to loss of lives, destruction of infrastructures and buildings. Aftershocks are continued to be felt in the area and is expected to continue for the next two weeks. For the safety of everyone, the APO Board came up with the following decisions:

  1. We will cancel the Bohol Congress in PINR. All delegates who booked their rooms in PINR will be given 100% refund of their payment but PINR is asking us to give them a leeway of one month before they start processing the refund.
  2. For those who paid and registered for Bohol Congress, we will push through with the seminar here in Manila. The venue will be at the Oakwood Premier.
  3. Instead of a 2 day seminar, we will just have a one day seminar. We will have the induction of the new APO members during lunch.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Laarni Serraon, APO President
