Christmas message of Vice Chancellor for Academics

December 20, 2019 | 2:15 pm

Christmas will always be as long as we stand heart to heart and hand in hand.
– Dr. Seuss

Things do happen for reasons. Reasons, which are sometimes beyond our imaginations and expectations. Year 2019 has been a year of opportunities, possibilities and achievements for De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. In 2015, together, we all set our One Direction: Our 20/20 Vision. After five (5) years, we have received two (2) of the most important laurels a tertiary educational institution can ever have: AUTONOMOUS STATUS AND AUN-QA ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP.

My sincerest gratitude and appreciation for all your support to the Academics of De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute.

Together and by Association, let us all be optimistic that 2020 shall be another blessed and fruitful year for all of us Lasallians who believe that “With God, everything is possible”.

Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Animo La Salle!

At your service,
Juanito O. Cabanias, LPT, MAE, PhD
