Message from the Chairman of the Dermatology Chapter

The 1st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Dermatology Chapter was held at the T.J Danaraj Auditorium, Faculty of Medicine, University Malaya on 6th – 7th July 2019. It was a tremendous success based on feedbacks from delegates, exhibitors and the secretariat.  

We are pleased to inform you that the 2nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Dermatology Chapter will be held in Women and Children Hospital, Hospital Kuala Lumpur from 22nd - 23rd February 2020. This meeting is held in collaboration with the Paediatric Dermatology Unit Hospital Kuala Lumpur. The theme of the meeting is "New Advances in Pediatric Dermatology and Humanitarian Dermatology". Our guest speakers are Jennifer Huang MD and Jennifer Tan MD from the Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA

It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to the 2nd Annual Scientific Meeting. It is well timed we have chosen Women and Children Hospital, Kuala Lumpur as our venue. The Hospital was only officially opened in 2019. This would be a premier academic meeting for pediatric dermatologists, dermatologists, pediatricians, specialists, trainees, medical officers and general practitioners to update themselves with the latest advances in the field of pediatric dermatology and humanitarian dermatology.

We are honoured to have with us Jennifer Huang MD and Jennifer Tan MD from the Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA who has travelled afar to share their expertise and experience with us. Dr. Jennifer Huang is a board certified Pediatric Dermatologist who has a special interest in taking care of dermatologic conditions of children with cancer. Her clinical and research interests are in graft-versus host disease, cutaneous reactions to cancer therapies and secondary skin cancer after cancer therapy. She is also dedicated to the teaching and mentorship of trainees, and currently serves as the Program Director of the Harvard Combined Dermatology Residency Program.

Jennifer Tan, MD is a board-certified Dermatologist and Pediatric Dermatologist who completed residency in the Harvard Combined Dermatology Program, where she served as Chief Resident before completing a fellowship in Pediatric Dermatology at Boston Children's Hospital. She also worked closely with Dr. Ernesto Gonzalez of MGH Dermatology to establish the Dermatology service at Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program. For her community service efforts, she has received numerous awards from the American Academy of Dermatology and Brigham and Women's Hospital.

I would like to extend my gratitude to our organising committee especially our scientific chairman Dr Leong Kin Fon, and the secretariat for all their good work in putting together this meeting. Finally, a word of special thanks to our speakers, our delegates, our exhibitors, PDM and HKL who make this meeting possible.
