This year’s Phil. Orthopedic Association (POA) Mid Year Convention will be on May 5-8, 2011 at the KCC Convention Center General Santos City. POA-South Mindanao Chapter, the host for this event, chose the Tuna capital as its venue and has lined up interesting topics (Read this souvenir program) for the participating orthopods.

This year’s theme,”Habal-Habal sa Gensan”  focuses mostly on orthopedic trauma resulting from motorcycle injuries and its socio-economic impact on Filipinos. Habal- Habal is the local vernacular for a motorcycle used as a passenger transport vehicle common in the countryside. As everyone might have noticed, traumatic injuries from motorcycle accidents tops the list for causes of acute trauma injuries in the Philippines.

So lets relax a bit off our busy cutting lives and enjoy this year’s mid year convention!

See you all at the Gen Santos City!
