Murugusundram S. Welcome to hair India 2012. Int J Trichol 2012;4:62-3
It gives me great pleasure to once again extend a warm invitation to attend the second International conference on trichology - "HAIR INDIA 2012" to be hosted by the hair research society of India between 7 th - 9 th September 2012 at Mamallapuram, a 7 th century port city near Chennai.
It was the unanimous opinion of all the delegates who attended the first International conference on trichology, Hair India 2010 that it was very informative and of high standards with many well known trichologists from different parts of the globe sharing their knowledge with us - "A true learning experience" for the younger generation of dermatologists from India.
The theme of the meeting had been "Only dermatologists can be true trichologists" and this enthused the younger dermatologists to take special interest in a scientific approach to disorders of hair.
Marching forwards in the mission of dermatologists being true trichologists, the theme of Hair India 2012 will be "TO ABOLISH QUACKERY IN TRICHOLOGY" since quackery in the name of trichology is flourishing and the only ethical way of fighting this out is with our academic weapons.
By popular request, the venue of the second conference will be the same as the first, in the pristine surroundings of the most scenic resort GRT Temple bay along the Coromandel Coast with added facilities and the serene shore temple being just a stone's throw away.
