PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE 2017 – 2019
I am honoured and humbled to be elected for the third term as the President of the Malaysian Menopause Society (MMS), more so to be at the helm as MMS celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. The last term (2015-2017) had been an exciting and action-packed tenure where we had 15 events over the last two years, both for doctors and the general public. Do visit our website’s Photo Gallery at www.menopause.org.my to view the memories we have created with our members and friends.
Membership continues to be on the rise, as we reached out to people who share our passion of living their lives to the fullest in their golden years. We also created a lot of firsts in our last term, holding our first Treasure Hunt, Mall Walk, visit to an organic farm, Merdeka Walk, even attending a high-level Ministerial workshop with several country representatives.
For this, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Dr Wong Kim Lei, the Immediate Past President of the last term, as well as the Executive Committee, for their dedication and hard work. Everyone worked as a team to make every event a success, and I am ever so grateful to be blessed with this wonderful committee.
Thankfully, we have the same team serving MMS for the 2017-2019, with the addition of Dr Ng Beng Kwang as our Vice-President.
A series of activities has been lined up for the whole year, and another series of Continuous Medical Education programmes is set to take place in the upcoming year, to fulfil the society’s mission of furthering education and awareness on menopause-related issues. We hope you will take the opportunity to attend as many events as possible because they are specially planned for you; yes, you!
I look forward to another exciting and fulfilling term of joy, fun and self-discovery with everyone. Menopause is not the end…it is a new beginning. Let’s live life to the fullest!
With greatest appreciation,
