A native of Negros Oriental, who has excelled in the medical field in the US, has been awarded the Life Time Achievement Award by the Philippine Economic and Cultural Endowment (PEACE) organization.

Col. Eusebio C. Kho, a medical practitioner and graduate of the UP College of Medicine of 1960, who took his pre-med course at Silliman University, was given the PEACE organization’s highest award during its annual convention on May 20 in O’Fallon, Illinois.

Dr. Cosme Cagas, PEACE executive director, announced the award.

Founded in 1986, PEACE started recognizing excellence among its members and other deserving individuals in 2007. Dr. Kho was the first and only recipient of its Humanitarian of the Year Award then.

He now holds the distinction of being the only person to have received two top awards from PEACE.

Kho, who was named Most Outstanding Intern of the Philippine General Hospital in 1960, went through extensive training in surgery in top institutions including Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio.

A multi-awarded leader and generous person, he served as president of the University of the Philippines Medical Alumni Society in America (UPMASA).

His exemplary service in the US Army included deployment in Operation Desert Storm in Iraq, for which he achieved the rank of Colonel.

The co-chairs of the PEACE Awards Committee, Dr. Ramon Suarez and Dr. Nenita Suarez, also received the PEACE Humanitarian Award in 2014 for their worldwide work on Non-Scalpel Vasectomy. (PR)
