Off to Finland

View of Tampere, FinlandNot for good, of course.

I’ve been blessed to be among the four Pinoys chosen to attend the Fifth Global Health Course in Tampere and Helsinki, Finland from August 13 to September 14, 2007. The other three are also alumni of the UP College of Medicine, including 2 very, very good friends- Johann Leonardia, my med school roommate for four years and Lester Geroy, my perennial groupmate since 1st year med. The fourth Pinoy in the team is a Pinay, Yas Villanueva, from UP Med Class 2002. All of us come from the public health sector: Johann is with Doctors to the Barrios in Iloilo, Lester is with the City Health Office of Malaybalay City in Bukidnon, and Yas is Municipal Health Officer of an island municipality in Quezon. We will join 24 other health professionals and students from Chile, Finland, and Tanzania.
