This isn’t really related to acupuncture, oriental medicine, or western medicine. Last Tuesday, October 15, 2013, the Philippines was hit by an earthquake. The epicenter was Tagbilaran City in the province of Bohol. Tagbilaran is home to some of my best friends in the world. Dr. Jefferson Ong is also an physician and acupuncturist practicing in Cebu and Tagbilaran. He and his family are active in the community and he recently sent me this message: Hi Philip. Just an update.
