    Dear Dra Catindig,

    I would like, first, to express my gratitude for giving me the opportunity to undergo the training on Diabetes. I am very grateful that I have enhanced my knowledge, and I have become more confident in managing diabetic patients. I am one of the LEAD PH Graduate during the sixth batch of this year.
    After going back to my place of practice, I happen to talk with other LEAD PH graduates in my area, Drs Geoffrey Leopecillo and Dante Bausa. I opened up a discussion regarding the possibility of having a Diabetes Education Center in our vicinity. They are very amenable to the idea and they are willing to support any project that would help educate our diabetic patients. This is very timely because I have a friend dietitian/ nutritionist who is an associate diabetes educator of the Philippine Center for Diabetes Educators. I am contemplating on organizing this office in partnership with our colleagues so that there will be support for the success of the proposed Education Center.
    Knowing that one goal of the ISDF is to educate diabetic patients all over the country, I would like to humbly request for your permission and assistance so that our plan will come into existence. May I know if there is a process for establishing such centers in the provinces? If there is, I would to apply and I will be willing to comply with the requirements. This will be our way of contributing to your vision.
    It will give me much pleasure to hear from you. Thank you very much.

    Yours truly,

    Arnel B. Binalla, MD
