As the new semester started, PAMAG continued to support these two outstanding University of the Philippines Diliman BS Chemistry students under the BE MY LAB PARTNER initiative. These students are doing remote learning because of the pandemic and have faced financial challenges thereby the university found a way to match the students with donors such as PAMAG to help them continue their education.
Charlene Inao and Emmanuel Larz Labsan are two of our outstanding scholars for the schoolyear 2020-2021. More power to them and Mabuhay ang mga Iskolar ng Bayan!

PAMAG Scholar placed #5 in the 2020 Philippine Medical Licensure Exam

Dear Friends,

Happy Thanksgiving to our family and friends in PAMAG and the Georgia community! Even with the pandemic still raging, we are blessed to have our health. Our family and friends have been helping us through this difficult times.

We have been able to share what we have to communities here in Georgia and around the world through our support of Americares. We have been able to do outreach in the Philippines through our local partners there. We aim to continue forging with our mission of sharing with your help.

We would like to acknowledge the great achievement of our recent PAMAG Scholar Dr. Chino Samson from the Lyceum Northwestern University. He placed #5 in the 2020 Philippine Medical Licensure Examination. He is the only one outside of Metro Manila and Davao who is in the Top 10. He was a working student while in medical school and needed our help to finish medicine. PAMAG Scholarship at work!

Happy Thanksgiving!


Dr. Romy Moriles
PAMAG President

Dr. Grace Duque Dizon with PAMAG Scholar and Dr. Chino Samson of Lyceum Northwestern University in Dagupan. CONGRATULATIONS AND MABUHAY!

As you may have seen and heard from the news, the destruction
left by SuperTyphoon Haiyan in the Philippines. We have not
encountered a typhoon stronger than this-affecting about 10 million
people, over 4,000 confirmed dead, thousands still missing and
about a million people displaced.
The Philippine American Medical Association of Georgia (PAMAG),
a 501C3 nonprofit organization, is spearheading a fundraising
campaign to benefit the typhoon victims. We have started the
PAMAG Disaster Relief Fund and plan to use this money for both
immediate and long term needs including rebuilding a school so
that devastated victims, especially the children in the community
can have hope for the future and rebuild their lives.
We pray that you open your hearts and help whatever you can.
Please make your checks payable to


Mail it to:
Dr. Livia Capuy
1111 Garredd Blvd. Suite A,
Augusta, GA 30909

Thank you for your generous tax deductible donation. The receipt
will be sent to you by mail.

Sincerely yours,
Drs. Livia and Halbert Capuy
