The USM Convocation (Convo) begins today and is open to the public for 5 days (19-23 Sept 2012). Live streaming of the event is online at USM website (I have posted on this earlier). If you have some time or happen to be in Penang, please visit the USM Convocation Exposition (Convex) outside Dewan Tunku Syed Putra (DTSP).


USM Medical School is also taking part. Year 2 medical students are taking charge of the Medical School booth. We take part every year. This year is a bit special because I have allowed my book to be promoted there. Only one book is on display at the USM Medical School booth. Only this title will be displayed for 5 days, "Research on the Early Malay Doctors 1900-1957 Malaya and Singapore". Since there are only 2 author's copies, I cannot let my students sell my copies. You can however take a look at the interior and see what is inside. Then you can buy it online at, Barnes and Noble or Xlibris.

The student who is in-charge of the display for my book is Fauzan. I gave him the materials for display on Saturday.
