DLSU-Manila grabs two Anvil Awards

De La Salle University-Manila won two Anvil Awards--one for Excellence for its admissions poster titled Future Perfect and another for Merit for the President’s Report of the DLSU System for school year 1999-2000.

Organized by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP), the annual Anvil Awards Night is the biggest event in the country’s public relations industry. The awarding was held last February 23 at the Hotel Intercontinental in Makati City.

DLSU-Manila, through the Marketing Communication Office, produced the marketing materials as part of a more active campaign to communicate the developments and achievements of the University.

Using the tagline Future Perfect, the admissions poster featured some of the most successful La Salle alumni--prominent figures from both government and business sectors. The poster was distributed to different high schools to give prospective college applicants an idea that La Salle helped shape the careers of these successful people.

Applications this year rose to 17,701 from 15,995 registered last year, even with such factors as potential increase in the cost of application and tuition fee.

The President’s Report, on the other hand, was cited as ..successfully incorporating the integrity of an annual report with the visual appeal of a travel magazine in line with its theme of ‘Rediscovery.’

The Rediscovery theme was based on La Salle System schools’ continuing quest for excellence, while constantly rediscovering the Lasallian values of service and excellence. The covered school year highlighted the collective and individual accomplishments of the System schools, and reflected the Lasallian community’s commitment to contribute to the nation’s development.

Besting several entries from the business industry, La Salle’s winning President’s Report was cited alongside the entries of companies such as the Ayala Group and Union Bank.

Confab on public health service to be held

The DLSU-Manila Social Development Research Center, through its Quality Assurance Project, will hold a national conference of public health service providers on March 7-9 at the Bayview Hotel in Manila.

The conference, Review Meeting Conference on Quality Improvement Initiatives in Public Primary Health Care Facilities, will allow the participants to share their experiences in implementing Quality Assurance initiatives in their own local areas from November 1998 to December 2000.

Dr. Exaltacion Lamberte is the director of the Quality Assurance Project.

OPHN USAID-Manila representatives Jed Meline and Ephraim Despabiladeras, Dr. Thomas Maramba of the Philippine Society of Quality Care, and Dr. Paulyn Jean Rosell-Ubial of the Center for Family and Environmental Health will grace the affair.

Faculty members of the interdisciplinary quality assurance team of DLSU-Manila who will share the results of their research are Dr. Benito Teehankee (Management), Angeles Lapeńa (Psychology), Cristina Rodriguez (Demography), Cristela Dakila (Economics), and Myla Arcinas (Sociology).

Topics include handling internal customers, providing motivation, improving leadership, and meeting client expectations, requirements, and satisfaction. The Department of Health’s Sentrong Sigla Movement will also be tackled.

The second day of the conference will focus on information systems and its uses to health provision, the assessment of quality of care, and the advocacy and management of QA training.
