Open-source doctor one of Ten Outstanding Young Men for 2005

Posted by Ricardo Gonzalez on PLUG:

Congratulations to Dr. Alvin B. Marcelo of the UP-Medical Informatics Unit for winning the prestigious 2005 TOYM (Ten Outstanding Young Men) in the field of Medicial/Health Information.

The TOYM award was given for his use of Open Source Software in his community health based projects.

I think we now have a new "poster boy" for the open source movement in the Philippines.

More power and success to Dr. Alvin Marcelo.
