Berita MPA eBMPA May 2010

19 May 2010

 

A word from the Editorial Team

Salams abd Peace from the editorial team of eBMPA. It is no mean feat trying to put together an e news monthly. Especially when one have other competing obligations. But with support from all around, we shall overcome.

This month’s news comes with an innovation! Apart from addressing purely child health issues, we would like to share news of a most interesting gurst to our shores. Myself and Zul attended a talk by the UK Independent’s international correspondent, Robert Fisk. I am nearly finishing reading his book “The Age of the Warrior” and his writings are not only provocative and insightful, he was just an enjoyable and brilliant speaker too.

I have taken the liberty of quoting the chairman of the event that night in his introduction of his most celebrated foreign correspondent. Thank you SOO for forwarding 2 important articles which we hope would give some perspectives on the issues of corporal punishment (CP) and stem cell therapy. The former is an American take on CCP whilst the latter is an official MOH statement on stem cell issues.

Our colleagues in USM have submitted a report on a most successful and well attended, meeting on endocrinology and adolescent medicine. I hope more of our colleagues would be generous in sharing their local activities with us. And our secretary has given a bird’s eye view of recent and upcoming events. Watch this space for the LATEST news on our 32nd MPA congress. It has been postponed from June to a later date in October and will be held in KL.

Have a pleasant read and peace always.

The Editorial Team.
