A Message from Our Past President Elaine Margaret P. Del Rosario 2015 President Opportunities to serve and improve peoples lives are abundant. Thank you to organizations like the ICD for being the driving force. ICDs strength is its membership. Because of its varied affiliations and abilities collaboration with other groups is easy and brings forth greater service. We have projects focused on prevailing needs of our environment society profession and the academe. Looking through The Globe one can see what is in the hearts of Fellows. The smiles in the faces of the benefactors are a testament that there is unfathomable joy in service. To quote volunteers are not necessarily those who have the time but the heart. This was the banner year of our ICD-Gawad Kalinga partnership in Batac Bataan. With the construction of the first 10 houses and tree planting Section IX PH I LI PPINES www.icd-philippines.org activity through our dental and community outreach we have made the Gawad Kalinga beneficiaries feel we will always be here for them. The value of dental education and our educators cannot be undermined. They will determine the future of dental services and dental professionals of our country. This year we collaborated with The Endodontic Society of the Philippines and organized the Endodontic Faculty Congress with the objective of standardizing the teaching of endodontics. We also awarded scholarships to three deserving dental students. Furthermore to initiate the ICD spirit among our future dentists we will conduct the Student Leadership Seminar in November. In October we had a community service activity in Taguig City.
