MAY 31, 2012 was a special day for both Doris A. Mendoza, M.D., FPPS and Iloilo Quotarians as club president Ma. Patricia “Patit” M. Macam and other officers renewed their commitment to serve their service club of choice.
Dr. Mendoza, a Professor of Medicine at West Visayas State University (WVSU) and a Pediatrician/Pediatric Cardiologist by profession, as Installation Speaker, talked about her journey from “Illness to Wellness and Wholeness…” From 2003 – 2005, she survived grave illness. She thanked the Lord for this grace through sharing her story with others. She offered “PRAY”: Praise the Lord; Rejoice in the Lord; Abide in Jesus Word and Yield yourselves to God! and “NEW START”: Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunlight, Temperance, Air, Rest and Trust in the Creator! as her secrets to longevity. With the gift of friendship and passion to share, she extolled Iloilo Quotarians to continue their journey of being more Fit for Life and do God’s work.
A former Quotarian herself, Doris urged her sisters to honor God with their time, talent, treasure, temple and testimony! For QY 2012 – 2013, President Patit and her team are determined to continue service projects for the hearing impaired and disadvantaged women and children.
