As we are about to
conclude our battle against SARS, the Federation is going to hold its Annual Scientific
Meeting earlier this year. The topic is: "SARS - Reflection & The Way
Forward". The Federation is the society of medical societies. Our President
Dr. Chan Chok Wan and the Chairman of the Education Committee Dr. Dawson Fong
therefore have invited different groups of health care workers to present in the
Meeting. In addition, the medical doctors of Mr. Tung's administration will also
come in their official capacities. It will be a very memorable event. Do come.

Following the special
issue on SARS, it may not be inappropriate for us to learn more about microbiology.
Dr. Ho Pak Leung, our specialty editor of microbiology have kindly arranged
the three paper in this issue's Medical Section. I think the topics are all
very timely. I hope you would still regard the HKMD a useful source of reliable
to meet you on Saturday, 21st June, 2003 in the Academy of Medicine.
