Greetings!

As your President, and on behalf of the incumbent Board of Directors (BOD), it is my sincere prayer and wish that all of you are in the best situation and good health.

Let me take this opportunity to present to you the thrust of the BOD for 2023-2024. The following strategic pillars or themes have been recently formulated and approved by the BOD based on our Society’s Vision and Mission:

EDUCATION : Promoting educational excellence in dermatology

RESEARCH : Pushing the boundaries of evidence-based research

OUTREACH : Providing access to dermatological care for all

ENGAGEMENT : Nurturing engagements within the society and external stakeholders

ADVOCACY : Promoting the society as the DermAuthority to the public

As I mentioned during the induction ceremonies, strategic pillars are the core elements of an organization’s strategic intent. They will provide the main direction for our society to achieve our vision-mission, guided by our core values of excellence, professionalism, integrity and open-mindedness.

By God’s grace, and in cooperation with all the committees, the current BOD is enthusiastic to implement concerted programs and projects nationwide. We intend to come up with a complete calendar of activities to keep members updated and encourage active participation in all these endeavors.

In line with this, the board has agreed to hold 3 virtual general assemblies, every second to the last Friday of March, June and September. We intend to present important matters and open communication lines amongst us. The next virtual general assembly
is slated on June 21, 2024 at 6:30 – 9:30 PM.

We strongly encourage all members to mark this date and prioritize their attendance. It serves as a crucial platform for sharing insights and collectively shaping the organization’s future.

No challenge or hurdle is difficult enough to overcome if we work together as one with selfless dedication and perseverance. It is my fervent wish that in our incumbency, we shall be able to see all these plans come into fruition – to our collective satisfaction and pride. After all, the success of our goals, objectives, and action shall not be the pleasure of just one but the honor of our Society, our beloved Philippine Dermatological Society.

May God bless us all!
