“…Strong people stand up for themselves but stronger people stand up for others,” says Dr. Maria Isabel Belizario, the newly-crowned Ms. Health 2018, in the pageant’s Question and Answer portion.
Dr. Belizario, second-year resident of the RITM Dermatology Department, was crowned Ms. Health 2018 on August 9, 2018 as part of the National Hospital Hospital Week celebration. She bested the representatives of 22 other participating government hospitals during the coronation night held at the UP Film Center.
Apart from the crown and the scepter, Dr. Belizario also took home the Best in Casual Wear award. She will hold the crown and the title until the Ms. Health 2019 is chosen at the next celebration of the National Hospital Week.
This is the first time that RITM bagged the title. Still in line with the celebration, RITM also joined in the Free Clinic, Research Contest, Sports Fest, and the Cheering Competition.
