Google celebrated the 107th anniversary of the birth of the national scientist Fe del Mundo by presenting the deceased Filipino doctor with his distinctive scribble.
The scribble, which was published on Tuesday at midnight, shows that she cares for a child.
Born in Intramuros, Manila, in 1911, she was known as the "Great Lady of Pediatrics of the Philippines" and was the first woman to enter the Harvard Medical School.
She was named National Scientist in 1980, the first woman to receive this award.
Also known as "The Angel of St. Thomas", del Mundo dedicated her life to child medical care and revolutionized pediatric medicine in the process.
In fact, she was the founder of the first pediatric hospital in the Philippines, the Children's Medical Center, which was later renamed Fe del Mundo Medical Center.
Del Mundo received the Ramon Magsaysay Prize, which is the Asian version of the Nobel Prize and the Lakandula Prize with the rank of Bayani.
She was also awarded the Elizabeth Blackwell Award for Outstanding Service to Humanity and was the first person to receive the Beata Teresa Award from Calcutta.
He died on August 6, 2011, and his remains are buried in the Libingan ng mag Bayani. / cbb
