She obtained the degree of Doctor of Medicine at the University of Sto Tomas in 1982, and underwent a four year Residency in Radiology at the Medical City General Hospital. She then managed their company that deals with the distribution of diagnostic laboratory equipment and consumables. She has now reached the time of her life when she realized that she must nfind time to give it more meaning by giving back in terms of service to her poor countrymen. That was after she attended a seminar entitled “Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life”, that made her decision easier to retire her business of 25 years.
Working now for PGHMFI has brought back in full circle her medical education as well as in sharing her vast experience in running a company which has brought a great advantage in the efficient running of the Foundation’s administrative operations and in the effective conduct of its programs and projects. Dra Dione, as she is fondly called is happily married to Dr. Ramon S. Suter, a neuro-surgeon and a member of UPCM class 1962.
