PLAE Exemplar Awards Call For Nominations

Dear Colleague:

Good day

The year 2016 marks  another year  to  celebrate  the  Epilepsy Exemplar Awards  as the  Philippine  League  Against  Epilepsy  (PLAE)  recognizes  our  patients  with epilepsy. PLAE  aims to  honor  Persons With  Epilepsy  (PWE) who  have  achieved excellence in their chosen fields by rising above their adversities.

PLAE  is  partnering  with HI-EISAI Pharmaceuticals  in  this  event.  Through  this partnership, we will be able to provide great opportunities for our PWEs in helping them achieve their dreams.  Similar to the most recent Epilepsy Exemplar Awards, each  awardee  will  be  receiving  a  prize  tailored fit  to  support  his/her  personal development, which will be in the form of an educational grant.

To  this  end,  we  are  inviting  all  PLAE  members  to  nominate  patients  who  they believe best represent what the Exemplar Award stands for.  The nomination forms and the criteria for nomination are enclosed in this letter.  In order for us to have enough time to review all nominees and finally select the winners, we would like to request that you send in your nominations before June 30, 2016.

Thank you very much for all your support.
