The global beauty brand, Mary Kay Inc. continues its commitment to supporting various communities through its sponsorship of the recently held University of the Philippines Medical Alumni Society of America's (UPMASA) 34th Annual Grand Convention at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
The sponsorship marks the latest in a series of partnerships between the leading skincare innovator and the scientific and academic communities.
Dr. Ponciano Cruz, UPMASA AGC Chair, said Mary Kay’s generous sponsorship helps them to continue to execute philanthropic activities such as faculty endowments, medical student scholarships, and physical infrastructure and equipment through the Philippine General Hospital. They also extend their efforts in the University of the Philippines College of Medicine (UPCM).
UPMASA provides healthcare assistance and supports medical education in the Philippines. It's a non-profit organization that consists of over 2,000 members that are medical doctors in the Philippines and around the USA, and welcomes volunteers in the clinical practice, research, academic medical education, and community endeavors.
