PAMET observes Sapphire National Convention at the Manila Hotel

Last November 25 to 27, 2009, the Philippine Association of Medical Technologists, Inc. (PAMET) held its 45th Annual National Convention which was also dated as the organization’s Sapphire Anniversary at The Manila Hotel.

The convention dwelt on the theme "Medical Technologists: On A Higher Leap amidst Global Challenges". This conveyed how the association optimistically would look forward to the future despite the country’s challenges brought by the natural disasters that inevitably destroyed million worth of properties and thousands of lives. The shifting trends on the profession both locally and globally were also pondered upon and focused on in the convention.

Medical Technologists’ high degree of commitment in addressing social concerns such as global warming, environmental protection, and climate change was also given a wider viewpoint on the convention.

The event started with the registrations of delegates, participants, and visitors, and scientific workshops where relevant topics on various areas of laboratory practice were thoroughly discussed. The traditional processional of PAMET National Board, Regional Directors, Chapter Presidents, Advisory Council and Keynote Speaker that followed the opening or pre-conference events was meaningfully done with the presence of representatives from various country- members of the Asia Association of Medical Laboratory Sciences (AAMLS).

The 4th Annual National Convention also had given awards to some of the promising members of the association. Ms. Jacinta B. Cruz as the Most Outstanding Medical Technologist of the Year; Ms. Vivian V. Tagama for the Distinguished Service Award of the Year; the Pangasinan Chapter for the Most Outstanding Chapter Award; and, Ms. Razel L. Kawano for the Crisanto G. Almario Memorial Award for Research.
