THE PROPOSED FREE MEDICAL CLINIC FOR THE POOR IN TABAC CITY, BICOL REGION, PHILIPPINES, IS PARTICULARLY ENDORSED. THE REGION SUFFERED THE GREATEST DAMAGE FROM RECENT HURRICANE DEVASTATION. VOLUNTEER PHYSICIAN ASSISTANCE IS REQUESTED FROM ALL MEDICAL SPECIALTIES. IN THE PAST, THE CONGREGATION OF RELIGIOUS MEDICAL MINISTRIES HAS WORKED ON BEHALF OF VICTIMS OF HURRICANE KATRINA. IN PARTICULAR, COMPONENT MEMBERS OF THE CONGREGATION OF RELIGIOUS MINISTRIES INCLUDED PHYSICIANS REPRESENTING WORLD CHRISTIAN CHILDRENS CRUSADE, WORLDWIDE MINISTRIES OF JESUS CHRIST, MINISTERS AND MEMBERS OF THE FIRST CHURCH OF THE EPIPHANY,
AND THE MOSQUE OF THE GOLDEN RULE,
AND ALL PHYSICIANS OF GOODWILL AND BELIEF IN MEDICINE AS A HUMANITARIAN PROFESSION WITH EMPHASIS ON KINDNESS AND HUMANITARIAN DEDICATION TO THE RELIEF OF SUFFERING, HELP WHENEVER POSSIBLE, AND THE FINDING AND APPLICATION OF CURES FOR THE DISEASES OF MANKIND.

STATEMENT BY THE DIRECTOR:

THE AMERICAN BOARD OF CARDIOLOGY DOES NOT BELIEVE RECERTIFICATION IS WORTH THE EFFORT OR
THE EXPENSE OR THE TIME TAKEN AWAY FROM PATIENTS.
THE AMERICAN BOARD OF CARDIOLOGY BELIEVES RECERTIFICATION IS AN UNFAIR BURDEN AND UNFAIR EXPENSE UNFAIRLY BORNE BY PHYSICIANS.
THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CARDIOLOGISTS WHO AGREE THAT RECERTIFICATION IS UNFAIR
AND SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY ABOLISHED.
THE AMERICAN BOARD OF CARDIOLOGY AGREES WITH THE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PHYSICIANS WHO ARE AGAINST RECERTIFICATION WHILE A HANDFUL IN THE MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT BECOME WEALTHY FROM THE RECERTIFICATION.
THE AMERICAN BOARD OF CARDIOLOGY SPEAKS OUT AGAINST RECERTIFICATION AS AN ABUSE OF PHYSICIANS AND HAS THEREBY GAINED THE ENMITY OF THE HANDFUL OF RECERTIFICATION PROFITEERS.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO STAND UP FOR THE PHYSICIANS AND THEIR PATIENTS.
WE WILL IGNORE THE SELF-SERVING FEW WHO OPPOSE AND ATTACK OUR MISSION:
HUMANITARIANISM IN MEDICINE.
