Below is Dr. Didi Orozco's CV as prepared by the Awards Committee:


ANTONITA L. OROZCO, M.D., M.C.H.
Class of 1981

Dr. Antonita Orozco was born in Tago, Surigao del Sur, the eldest in the family of 3 children. She obtained her B.S. Pre-Med Degree at the Silliman University in Dumaguete City and her Doctor of Medicine from the Southwestern University, MHAM College of Medicine, Inc, in Cebu City in March 1981.

Dr. Orozco served her Post-Graduate Internship in Tago, Surigao del Sur from May 1981 to April 1982. She took the Philippine Licensure Examination for Physicians given by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) in June 1982.

Prior to the issuance of an M.D. License and while waiting for the result of the Physician Licensure Examination, all doctors-to-be had to render the six-month Post-Board Rural Health Service Program of the Department of Health. It was thus that Dr. Orozco found herself serving as a community doctor in her home province right after taking the Board Exam. On October 25, 1982 Dr. Orozco had to answer a request to do an autopsy on a man murdered by an armed rebel group in a distant mountain barangay. She boarded an only available military van as transport together with the man’s widow and her child, accompanied by the chief of police of Tago, and six soldiers. They were about 20 kms from Tago when the army van they were riding in was ambushed and strafed and riddled with bullets by the NPA, which turned out to be the same group responsible for the killing of the man the day before. Of the 10 passengers of the ill-fated vehicle only Dr. Orozco survived, but not without suffering nearly-mortal multiple gunshot wounds and lying there bleeding.

It was while she was recuperating from major surgeries for multiple wounds in Brokenshire Hospital in Davao City that she learned that she passed the licensure exam for physicians given in June 1982.

Dr. Orozco suffered spinal injuries and a fractured forehead and had to undergo craniotomy and cranioplasty. She was released from the hospital on December 18, 1982 to spend Christmas with her family in a Davao City apartment.

From 1985 to 1991 Dr. Orozco received her appointment as Rural Health Physician in Tago, Surigao del Sur, with concurrent assignment in the Technical Service Division of Surigao del Sur Provincial Health Office for 2 years

In 1991 she was granted a two-year scholarship by the Dept. of Health for studies leading to a Masters Degree in Community Health at the Ateneo de Davao which she graduated in 1993.

Following the enactment into law of the Local Government Code and the implementation of the law on Devolution of health services, she was devolved to the Province of Surigao del Sur and was assigned in Tandag (Surigao del Sur) Rural Health Unit from 1993 to 1999. Thereafter, she was detailed in the Provincial Health Office as Planning Officer from 1999 to 2000.

She was appointed in 2000, to a post she still presently holds, as Medical Officer IV of the Adela Serrat Ty Memorial Hospital in Tandag, Surigao del Sur, where she acts as Officer-in-Charge in the absence of the Hospital Director.

Congratulations and Best Wishes Igso. I always admire your humanity and selflessness. The other day, I was on the phone with Aida Cardenas (from Brokenshire). She resides in Miami now. She asked about you. Now, I have the answer. Thanks k-spy.

Congratulations for a well-deserved recognition and award, “Dr. Antonieta L. Orozco”!

It was beyond belief that you would still survive that catastrophic incident with multiple deadly gunshots all over your body that laid you down lying on your blood hovering between life and death; others were dead on the spot. That Chief-of-Police of Tago you were with in that van while in mission was my uncle(may he RIP). However, as a result of the craniotomy and cranioplasty that delicate motor … the power on your head was untouched and preserved, which made you still very much alive and kicking, and is still very much functional to learning and earning additional degrees and more knowledge and responsibilities fitted for the verdict being “The Most Oustanding Alumna of SWU”.

Di, I salute to your doggedness, fighting spirit and brilliant mind as I have know you were. Nothing has put you down. Uno kaha kon wa pa kaw mahitabo. You are indeed at the top of the world, sings Ray Coniff. A SURVIVOR against all odds! And indeed an Outstanding Pride of Tago! Thank God! Again, “Di, CONGRATULATIONS”!!!!!

We, Tagon-ons are happy for you. I know your Pa, Tata and Boy and your company in the van are happy for your achievements.


Thanks k_spy for always updating us.

mana didi is a good friend. a kindred soul actually because she also reads like there's no tomorrow.

she's simply unbelievable; more than proving the strength of her spirit, she has become a glowing testament of rebirth and triumph.

one is dwarfed simply by thinking how she had moved on from an incident that would break people of lesser stuff. that she has become a paragon of public service makes things even more extraordinary. mana didi is a rabid advocate for good governance!!! in fact she IS good governance herself! if only politicians take her cue!

tago is lucky enough that a person like mana didi comes along because not all towns can produce a hero. or in this case, a heroine.

long live mana didi.
