Message from the President
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The celebration of our 10th year anniversary opens a new chapter in History of the Hepatology Society of the Philippines.
While we reminisce on the innumerable challenges we have hurdled along the way, we look back with pride at our long list of feats and contributions that have played a significant part in the progress of this Society.
At the same time, we look ahead at the opportunities and prospects which can further entrench the HSP up until the coming decades as the lead national organization for the study of the liver.
The milestones reached by our Society thus far would not have been made possible without the untiring dedication and unwavering support of our original incorporators, past Presidents, past Officers and past Board of Directors; our pharmaceutical sponsors and corporate sponsors; our mother organization, the Philippine Society of Gastroenterology, and our sister organization, the Philippine Society of Digestive Endoscopy; and most specially, our members.
Our commitment to meet and satisfy the expectations of our members constantly permeates the various activities of our Society's anniversary celebrations:
