An Invitation to Attend a Postgraduate Medical Course

Posted Jan 16 2009 4:58am

Yes, I know, dear readers, I’ve failed to update this health blog.  And I know you already know my reason for that.  Hopefully, in the coming weeks, I would have been able to adjust to the new life I’m having and be able to share more medical insights. 

But for now, I’d like to invite you, dear readers, to attend our institution’s first Postgraduate course for the year.
