THE ASCLEPIAN VOICE
THE OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE ORDER OF ASCLEPIUS : WEST VISAYAS STATE UNIVERSITY—COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

MARCH 14, 2015

VOLUME 1 ISSUE NO.2

CLEAR PERSPECTIVE
Article by: John Ramel Q. Rafael

Ever since we were young, we
were bombarded with the ever
popular analogy of the glass with water
filled midway. Pessimists would say
that it is half empty while the optimists
would argue that it is half full. This has
even evolved in such a way that
people who would see that the glass is
filled with water consider themselves
as realists. Regardless of whether your
view is at the opposing ends of the
spectrum or somewhere in between all
depends on your perspective.
Perspective, or point of view, as
some would say pertains to a particular
attitude
or
way
of
regarding
something. As Asclepians we are
called to go beyond the confines of the
college and use whatever knowledge
and skills that we have for the better of
our fellow citizens who are in need of
our help. Not only that, no matter
where we are in the world, we are
solidified and unified by our bonds as
brothers and sisters; Frater, Medica,
Servia.
This has been something that has
been recently reiterated to us in the
person of Dr. Alexander G. Sangrador,
an ophthalmologist by profession, and
an Asclepian by heart. Our brief
encounter with him has somehow
inspired us to see things in a better
light. Since his humble beginnings as a
graduate of this humble institution, and
a member of batch 25 of the Order of
Asclepius, he has come a long way in
making strides in his profession as well
as being able to look back at his roots
and building bridges for the future.
Dr. Sangrador has had numerous
accomplishments in his field of
specialization. He was part of the
Global
Alliance
for
Blindness
Prevention, a two-week program
sponsored by the American Academy

of Ophthalmology last October 2014,
and was the first Filipino to ever
participate in the 15-year history of
the program. The said program is a
cultural, social and educational
exchange which seeks to widen the
perspectives of ophthalmologists on
the current practice as well as the
trends and updates in the said field.
What caught his attention was not
only the opportunity to see how
ophthalmology is practiced in the
“ideal” set-up but how the program
was affiliated with the different
international
ophthalmology
advocacy groups such as ORBIS
International which was popularly
known for operating the world’s only
flying eye hospital and made a
landing here in Iloilo some years
back. Dr. Sangrador also had his own
local advocacies such as conducting
regular health teachings to the lay
people. One of which is on
debunking
eye
myths
and
misconceptions.

With such remarkable credentials,
his take home message for all of us is
to have a clear perspective which entails being able to enterprise and seize
opportunities. We should not wait for
things to be handed to us; instead we
have to take the initial step. The Order
of Asclepius is an excellent avenue for
this. Recently, the organization,
through the project
entitled Order
in Action: Video for Health Skills
(OA-VHS) has been one of the national
finalists for the search for the Ten
Accomplished Youth Organizations
(TAYO) and won the Most Innovative
Project award.
With its increased recognition, the
organization continues to flourish and
established external linkages making
us able to realize our goal of pursuing
excellence through brotherhood and
sisterhood in medicine through
service. With the continued support of
all the members of the Order of
Asclepius, we will be able to reach
greater heights and beyond. This all
begins with a clear perspective.#
