2017 is the 40th Anniversary of our College and a series of events will kick off soon. HKCFP 40th Anniversary Conference with the theme "From Seedling to Forest - Ever Enriching Primary Care” will be in September. The Conferment Ceremony will shift to December 2017 instead of the usual May/ June timeslot to coincide with the Annual Dinner. Other major events of the year, just to name a few include eight public lectures organized by Board of Education and the radio programme 精靈一點 on Family Medicine by RTHK. For overseas events, we will actively participate in the Cross Strait Medical Exchange at Xiamen in March and Wonca Asia Pacific Region Conference at Pattaya, Thailand in November. The events will be jam-packed in the latter half of the year and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible especially at the Anniversary Conference and Annual Dinner. For the philatelists, please look out for the first day stamp cover issued by the Hong Kong Post.
