By Dr. Maria Emilyn Bautista de Marcaida The 5th APO General meeting 2008-2009 held at Palm Grove, Rockwell Club, Makati last Aug 5 2009 was particularly memorable because aside from the socially relevant topics discussed, this day marked the occasion of the interment of our dear Mother of Democracy Corazon Aquino. With that in mind, Dr. Rossana Sanchez led the invocation with special intention for our beloved ex-President at about 8:40 am. This was followed by the National Anthem. After which, APO president, Dr. Jose Manuel Rivera gave the welcome remarks. This meeting was hosted by Quezon City 4 with Drs. Maria Elenor Estrada and Maria Victoria Reyes as masters of ceremonies.

By Dr. Irene Palma A cold and gloomy day greeted everyone on the morning of the first day of October as many, for sure, found it easier to snuggle up and savor the cozy temperature of the holiday morning. Such, however, was not the case for the 38 members of the Association of Philippine Orthodontists who, despite rain showers, cold wind and the thick fog, trooped to the Tagaytay Highlands Resort to attend the new Fiscal Year’s 1st General Meeting.
