I am honoured and privileged to be elected as
the President of the College of Pathologists of
Sri Lanka 2020. I wish to thank all the members
for trusting me in enduring this huge task. I
wish to express my deep gratitude to the office
bearers and the council 2020 for joining hands
with me to work for the college.
"Eco friendly Histopathology 2020" will be the
theme for this year, and the council hopes to
work hard in achieving this.
Climate change is one of the biggest global
threats in this century. We as histopathologist
should do our part in being more eco friendly
and waste reduction.
There will also be many academic activities
organized for the year 2020 for the enhancement
of knowledge. The main event for 2020 will be
the International Conference, jointly organized
by the CPSL & the BDIAP - "International
conference on Lymphoid, Dermatopathology and
Cytopathology", to be held in October 2020.
Other than these main events we will also be
focusing on other educational programmes for the
Consultants and trainees of pathology.
I will also continue the activities of our past
presidents in uplifting the college activities.
I request the membership to join hands with me,
to achieve the targets for 2020. Let's make a
change towards a better future
