Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The Dermatological Society of Malaysia is honoured to host the 15th Asia Pacific Environmental Occupational Dermatology Symposium (APEODS) from 12th – 15th September 2019 in Kuala Lumpur. This symposium will be held in conjunction with Malaysian Annual Dermatology Conference.
The Meeting will focus on knowledge to enhance safety in the environment and at work and emphasizing on determining the cause of the allergy beyond the shadow of doubt. Prominent dermatologists from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Croatia, England, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden and Thailand are expected to share their experiences and knowledge in their respective fields during this symposium.
We will be introducing a session specially for local junior dermatologists to discuss with the experts. We will also take the opportunity in commemorating the 30th year of APEOD group by launching the Asian research database for future references.
We hope you will take this opportunity to fortify the friendship and sharing of knowledge among Asia Pacific dermatologists and the ICDRG members. Your presence and active participations will determine the success of this event.
On a lighter side, get to know Malaysia where a melting pot of multi-culturalism and diversity, rich with historical background and exotic cuisines await the adventurous. Multiculturalism has not only made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise, it has also made Malaysia home to dozens of colourful festivals. You can experience these unique Asian experiences in one destination – Malaysia, truly Asia.
We look forward and welcome you to Malaysia in September 2019.
