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

VOLUME 1 ISSUE NO. 7

A

midst
the
angst
depicted on their
faces, young schoolage boys lined up
waiting for their turn to undertake
a rite considered by most, if not all
adolescent Filipino male
experience, circumcision. Male
circumcision is considered a rite of
passage to manhood by Filipinos
and had been kept as tradition
passed down from father to son.
The Order of Asclepius, along
with Rotaract Club of Bacolod South
spearheaded a circumcision drive
at Banago Elementary School II
Multipurpose Hall, Brgy. Banago,
Bacolod City, Negros Occidental
on April 11, 2015.
A to tal o f 94 ch ildre n
participated in the said event with
ages ranging from 8 to 18 years
o ld. All participan ts were
successfully circumcised. Postoperative medications for pain and
antibiotics were provided as well
as health education for home care
of circumcision site.
The circumcision drive sought
to provide accessible and free
surgical services to our
countrymen in the
community
setting. The said activity is also in
consonance with the thrust of the
Order of Asclepius which is to
foster brotherhood in medicine
through service.
The said activity was made
possible through the support of the
following: Dr. Chris Sorongon
(Batch 24), Rotaract Club of
Bacolod South, Banago Elementary
School II Parents - Teacher
Association, Banago Barangay
Council, medical students of West
Visayas State University and
University of St. La Salle - Bacolod,
and faculty and 3rd Year BS Nursing
students of Colegio San AgustinBacolod.#
