This event will be remembered by Pozorrubians. A first in the history of the town. On this occasion, a Pozorrubian, Dr. Blesilda dela Rosa-Salvador, of the popular, ‘Dra. Bles at Your Service’ program of DZMM, is selected one of the Ten Outstanding Filipino Physicians. TOFP is a JCI Senate Philippines and Dept of Health project started 9 months ago.
Dra. Bles is described as ’an OB/GYN who has made her mark as a health educator through media. For more than 10 years, Doctora Bles continues to bring medical information to people from all walks of life through the radio, TV, and the Internet via her Teleradyo program “Doctora Bles at Your Service.” She renders free medical advice on air and gives vital knowledge about medicine and science in Pilipino. Because of the wide coverage of media, her program reaches OFWs abroad, who benefit from listening and understanding the medical topics she tackles. Most of all, her free consultations via letters, phone patch, or cell phone text messaging effectively help those who cannot immediately see a doctor. Just like some of the other awardees, she has chosen to continue her medical practice here, while her nuclear family has migrated to the US.’
‘Doktora Bles’ is a Pozorrubian by marriage to Dr. Raul Francisco D. Salvador of the deep-rooted Pozorrubian Salvador-Doras clan. The couple established a clinic in Pozorrubio in their early years of medical practice, and while serving their local clientele, the Pampangena wife assimilated with the elite, folks and commoners of the community. They are blessed with three pretty/handsome, intelligent and responsible children, Ryan, Sandra, and Barbara, who, themselves, are starting to create their marks in their respective careers. When this author congratulated her and thanked her for bringing honor to the town, she texted back: “Salamat, Kuya. Siempre, parad sicatayo yan amin, taga_Pozorrubio aq met lan talaga”.
We salute you, Dra Bles!
