Another feather in your cap! 

Congratulations to our very own, the stellar, Dr. Renzo R. Guinto for being one of “The Oustanding Young Men (TOYM) 2022 Awardees for Health and Medicine”!

“As a physician, now I’m treating 2 patients, not just people but also the planet… And so this recognition is not just really an award but an inspiration for the decades ahead, because we have so many challenges that we’ll need to be confronting. And we need to all work together to achieve healthy people and a healthy planet.”

Dr. Guinto is an Associate Professor of the Practice of Global Public Health and the Inaugural Director of the Planetary and Global Health Program of the St. Luke’s Medical Center College of Medicine – WHQM (SLMCCM-WHQM). Last year, he was appointed as one of the 16 members of the National Panel of Technical Experts (NPTE) that advises the Philippine government on advancing and translating climate science in the country.

Your Lukan family is very proud of you!
