From the Chair
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is with great honor to welcome everyone to our PARM 18th Midyear Convention at the Summit Ridge Hotel, Tagaytay City. This year’s theme, “Let’s Talk About SEXual Rehabilitation” tackles on a very essential yet often untouched concern of the ill, the elderly, and persons with disabilities (PWDs).
Sex, a basic human need that has been inadequately addressed and crudely understood, is a reality and a common issue among patients with disabilities and patients with chronic medical conditions. Sexual rehabilitation, an integral part in the holistic approach of physical and rehabilitation medicine, is once again revisited to give an overview on how we, as Physiatrists, can promote understanding for a healthy and active sex life among our patients.
The interesting new topics by our celebrity speakers coupled with your continued support to the endeavours of the Academy are reasons enough to see you all in Tagaytay! Maraming salamat po!
