On November 12, 2015, the Council of Health and Integrative Medicine (CHIMe) of the Philippine College of Chest Physicians had its 2nd CHIMe Summit with the theme “Paano Piliin ang Magaling sa Kontra at Palpak” held at the University of Santo Tomas.

The aim of the Council for the 2nd Summit was Educating Filipinos on how to choose appropriate therapy from a simplified Evidence Based Approach. The council hopes to have the talks available online for the benefit of everyone.
