Habal-Habal sa GenSan: The 22nd Mid-year Orthopaedics Convention
Starting tomorrown, May 5 and up to Saturday, the Philippine Orthopaedic Association is conducting their 22nd Mid-year Convention at the KCC Mall of GenSan Convention and Events Center! Hosting it is their South Mindanao Chapter headed by Dr. Siegfried Rabang.
2011 seems to be a banner year for GenSan when it comes to hosting national conventions just like this one. This gathering of bone doctors however, which includes a member of the Soccsksargen Bloggers, Dr. Remo Aguilar caught our eye because of their convention theme: HABAL-HABAL SA GENSAN!
Perusing through their activities (which we are sharing below) would indicate that a major focus of their discussions would be on “motorcycle accidents”, being one of the biggest cause of injuries and deaths in the countryside. Habal-Habal is basically, a Visayan term for a “motorcycle for hire”. Very interesting and very apt considering that GenSan has a lot of this modern-day phenomenon.
It won’t be just work for our visiting orthopaedics of course. They will be toured around Soccsksargen and will be the first really big group to try the ziplines of 5th Mountain of Balakayo Adventure Park.
