Lily Mushahar
Malaysian Society of Nephrology

Dear Colleagues,

It is indeed an honour and a great pleasure to be the President of Malaysian Society of Nephrology year 2022-2024. I extend my gratitude and appreciation to my predecessor, Prof. Dr Abdul Halim Abdul Gafor who have led the Society and to the outgoing executive committee on their contributions for the last 2 years

I would like to highlight MSN will continue to strengthened collaborations with affiliated society namely Asian Pacific Society of Nephrology (APSN) and the tripartite society with Taiwan Society of Nephrology (TSN) – Nephrology Society of Thailand (NST). This collaboration not only have created great friendship but also creating opportunities for our Society members to be involved as invited speakers and participation in various educational activities.

MSN will strive forward to promote public health literacy on kidney healthcare using social media platform such as MyBuahPinggang website and MyBuahPinggang Facebook page. This year, the Society have introduced MSN KidneyAcademy in collaboration with DocQuity and MSN Masterclass Series to expand the education platform to healthcare professionals including the primary care. Together with the Society members, we hope to receive continuous support and will continue our Society mission towards Kidney Healthcare for everyone.

On a final note, I would like to announce MSN will host the next Annual Congress of Nephrology in Setia Spice Convention Center, Penang on 7-9th July 2023. Please mark your calendar and save the date for this event.

Wishing everyone a healthy and prosperous year 2023. See you in MSN 2023 Penang!
