New SLMA President
Professor Sanath P. Lamabadusuriya, former Dean and Professor of Paediatrics of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Colombo was inducted as the President of the Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA) for 2011 on 22 January 2011 at a ceremony held at the auditorium of the Hatton National Bank.
In December 2010, the University of Ruhuna invited him to deliver the Convocation Address and also honoured him with a Doctor of Science (D.Sc) degree. Very few medical doctors have been thus honoured.
Prof. Lamabadusuriya is the second member of our batch to hold this prestigious office. Suriyakanthi Karunaratne Amarasekera was SLMA President in 2006
