Good day! Let me welcome the delegates to our 2nd virtual annual convention and the 65th anniversary celebration of the Philippine Society of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. This year’s theme: ELEMENTS, through the years as we forge into the future. ELEMENTS stand for: Essential Lessons, Experiences, Milestones, Encounters and Tenets that we have learned as the society celebrates our 65th year and as we look forward into the future.
Let me congratulate and express my heartfelt gratitude to the organizing committee for their tireless efforts in making this three-day event an affair to remember. I am a witness to how each and every member tirelessly worked to ensure that this event will be a meaningful success.
Let me also acknowledge the exciting and informative programs the scientific committee has put together highlighting some of the most interesting topics of all the different disciplines of our society that can be very useful in our daily practice. We also have some symposia on career opportunities outside our ORL-HNS practice.
The occasion of our society’s 65th anniversary could be a fitting event for a lavish celebration as we reveal this milestone in our society. But with the pandemic still very much in our midst, celebrations for even the most significant events had to be toned down and suited in new but still meaningful ways.
In the meantime, let us enjoy virtually the most significant event in our society’s annual calendar as we celebrate our 65th anniversary! Thank you and God bless us all.
