The team was composed of Dr. Terrence Cham and Dr. Karen Lee-Ong from the Department of Ophthalmology, Dr. Edmund Ong and Dr. Catherine Osea from the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Dr. Ma. Socorro Garcia from the Department of Family and Community Medicine, Sheryl Ann Limson from the Pharmacy Department, Rowel Dasco from the Nursing Service Division, and volunteers from the Corporate Social Responsibility Office were able to serve 1,175 patients by conducting 1,635 consultations and 25 minor operations.
