PARM Mindanao regularly meets at the last weekend of November but in 2018 the Annual Meeting had to be a month early. On October 26-27, 2018, PARM Min members gathered in Cagayan de Oro for the 3rd PARM Quarterly and Annual Chapter Scientific Meeting with the theme, “Equipping Physiatrists in the Globally Growing Geriatric Population”. Two speakers, Eva Angel, MD and Miguel Ramos, MD, discussed the following topics namely, fall prevention, frailty and assessment tools.
Last November 8-11, 2018, PARM Min members attended the “Cardiac Rehabilitation Course” in Hongkong. Registration was partly paid for by funds of the chapter. The 2019 Annual Chapter Scientific Meeting is set on November, 2019 in Zamboanga City.
