After the successful launch of the web-based UPMASA Journal last September 2020, we are proud to give you the Fall 2020 issue.

This web version replaces the printed edition of our Journal, which has a beloved history of publishing a
wide range of articles in a variety of areas. The web editions will keep on the tradition of publicizing
UPMASA National and UPMASA Chapters’ news and organizational updates. It will also include personal
stories, commentaries, and publications in academics, the arts, and others by our members.
The UPMASA Journal on the web is being presented by the combined efforts of the Publications Chair,
Dr. Guia Razon Palma, Board of Governors Chair Dr. Henry C Echiverri, Dr. Angelina de la Cruz- Castro of
class 67 and yours truly – Dr. Susan Concepcion Echiverri, your president.


It is UPMASA’s pride to have Dr. de la Cruz- Castro as the Guest Editor for this Fall 2020 issue. She is the
editor of a monthly newsletter called “Tidbits”, a Class ’67 unique publication.   Enjoy their stories.


Let me continue to applaud Dr. Razon-Palma and the rest
of the team in bringing us the UPMASA journal on the web.



Susan Concepcion Echiverri, MD
2019 – 2021 UPMASA President
Former UPMASA editor
