The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

The MIND-PC Turns One

Metro Manila Integrated Non-Communicable Disease Program Coalition (MIND-PC) celebrated its first anniversary with a series of special events with the theme “Mind Your Health: Unite to Fight Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD’s)!”, bringing together almost 300 delegates from different Local Government Units and Non Government Agencies. Autism Society Philippines (ASP) -- one of the members of the MIND-PC through the Secretariat of the Center for Health Development-National Capital Region -- joined the first Anniversary on 21 September 2012 at the People’s Hall Quezon City Memorial Circle.

The said celebration started the registration as early as 5am, it followed with the Fun Run and biking from selected bikers from different LGUs that take place around the Quezon City Circle. A “Hataw” Exercise facilitated by the organizers right after the delegations came back.

Chief-Health Operations Division, Dr. Ruben Siapno with Regional Director, Dr. Eduardo C. Janairo and other special guests led the ribbon cutting as they grace the opening of the special program. Different booth exhibits, merchandise and freebies for health check like bone scanning and blood check are open to all of the participants. The participants were also wooed by our very own PWA John Paul Lumba from ASP Lagro Chapter; he showcased his talents and skills in keyboard while singing two (2) Filipino Songs.

The said celebration was attended by ASP Executive Director, Ranil Sorongon and ASP Angels, Abegail Mendoza and Cath Genovia as they distributed the ASP brochures to all doctors, nurses, health workers who were present in the said event.

Reminiscing: ASP, represented by Cath Genovia, remembers the 3-day live-in Annual Consultative Workshop at Cherry Blossoms, Ermita, Manila last November 18 to 20, 2011. ASP was one of the invited participants of the said workshop and is became a member of the Core Group.
