National Symposium of Health Promotion Malaysia 2010 afterword

A total of 3 representatives from Green Lung had attended the event held at the auditorium of HUKM in Cheras on the 27th to 28th November 2010.
On the 28th November, our Green Lung President, Mr Koay Khang Siean had presented about Green Lung and we are proud to say that his presentation had actually sparked off much interest and attention among the audiences. We had gained a lot of positive feedbacks from some other NGOs leaders.
Instead of stressing on "ANTI-tobacco", Green Lung emphasizes on positive influences by creating a sustained effort in promoting a SMOKE-FREE environment. The positive image we're proposing has also gained some positive feedback from leaders of other NGOs.
This event has indeed been an eye-opener for Green Lung and Green Lung is definitely looking forward towards future collaborations with both government agencies and also the NGOs in effort of fighting for a smoke-free environment.
In Green Lung, we believe that even a little effort can create a huge change. A little support from each of us is able to make a great transformation.
Together, we can make the environment greener and smoke-free!

8th Asia Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium (APPS), July 2010

APPS is the most prestigious event of IPSF-APRO gathering more than 150 pharmacy students from various countries in Asia Pacific region including S.Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, Thailand etc. This was also the second time where IPSF-APRO met Green Lung officially since Green Lung Carnival in February this year.
I'd been given a slot to present Green Lung to the participants. The presentation I suppose turned out great. A few representatives from Indonesia, India and Japan did approach me and showed their interest in working with Green Lung in the future.

is a cause for many cardiovascular diseases.
is a CANCER-causing agent - a major factor for lung cancer and respiratory diseases
is a gate-way Drug - an addictive drug

For a Youth, 
Tobacco is an implicit-change-agent for an explicit-tilt towards
Alcohol, Drugs and HIV/AIDS.

Today's YOUTHs are tomorrow's pillars of the world!

Thus it is certainly our bounden duty to create a 


Almost all Alcoholics are Smokers.
Almost all Drug-abusers are either Alcoholics or Smokers.
Almost all HIV-AIDS carriers are either Drug-abusers or Alcoholics or Smokers.

Tobacco is the stepping-stone to the world of ALCOHOLDRUG ABUSE and HIV-AIDS!

By creating a tobacco-free society, we could build a
Alcohol-free, drugs-free, HIV/AIDS-free global society 
a healthy tomorrow for all of us!
