Pharex joins 104th Philippine Medical Association Annual Convention
May 17 to 20, 2011 - Grand Regal Hotel, Davao City
Philippine Medical Association (PMA) partnered with unibranded medicines pioneer Pharex HealthCorp this year to mount the medical society’s 104th annual convention which was held last May 17 to 20, 2011 at The Grand Regal Hotel in Davao City.
With the theme “Manggagamot: Kaagapay ng Sambayanan Tungo sa Tunay na Pagbabago,” the event featured President Benigno C. Aquino III who delivered a keynote speech before more than 2,000 registered doctors who attended the gathering. Guests flew in from different parts of the country just to be part of the momentous occasion.
As the event’s major sponsor, Pharex HealthCorp ensured that it is one with the PMA in delivering high-quality yet affordable healthcare to Filipinos through its “Gamot Mo May Ka-Pharex” campaign.
Pharex put up a booth at the convention venue where doctors could know more about the company’s new campaign, which aims to educate Filipinos on achieving better health through its high-quality yet affordable medicines.
Doctors lined up at the booth as well to have their pictures taken at the Pharex photobooth.
The annual convention culminated with the PMA Fellowship Night held last May 18 at the Waterfront Insular Hotel also in Davao City. With a Caracoles theme, delegates came in island-inspired attire to enjoy a fun and exciting night with their fellow doctors.
Gracing the fellowship night were Dr. Malou Monteverde, president of the Davao Medical Society and overall chair of this year’s event; Dr. Oscar Tinio, president of the PMA; and Pharex HealthCorp president and CEO Tomas Marcelo Agana III.
Pharex pulled out all the stops to help host one memorable party for the guests. Highlighting the event was a dance presentation featuring groups from the PMA and Pharex HealthCorp competing in the spirit of fun and camaraderie.
The Pharex Dance Group, together with the PMA Component Societies headed by Dr. Blanquita Gatmaytan, president of the Laguna Medical Society, performed a special dance number that truly made the evening even more entertaining for everyone.
The event was also highlighted by the parade of lechon that brought excitement to the crowd. The search for the Caracoles King and Queen also made the evening more fun and special for the guests, which were awarded by Pharex Erythromycin RSM Lemon Sabalvaro. Caracoles Prince and Princess were also crowned that night, which was awarded by Pharex HealthCorp CCG Product Managers Liza Camba and Rolland Tria.
Pharex president and CEO Tomas Marcelo Agana III thanked the PMA for the opportunity to host this year’s PMA anniversary, which also gave a chance for the company to share its commitment to promote better healthcare for all Filipinos.
In line with this commitment to actively promoting affordable healthcare, Pharex shared with doctors its latest program – the Ka-Pharex Card – which aims to forge a strong partnership with doctors in providing affordable generic medicines to their patients through discounts and numerous perks and privileges that come with the membership.At the end of the event, PMA Fellowship Night Chair Dr. Helen Grace Te-Santos expressed her gratitude to the organizers and sponsors for the success of this year’s event.
