OBITUARY - MR TONG YEW SUM
The late Mr Tong Yew Sum passed away peacefully on 27th March 2018 at the age of 75 years old.
He was active in the founding years of the Malaysian Pharmaceutical Society as a council member for many terms, and also as a Vice President. He was a vocal member who speaks out and a dedicated pharmacist at heart.
Being a stakeholder in manufacturing, distribution and community pharmacy he played significant role in influencing the pharmaceutical industry especially through Malaysian Organisation of Pharmaceutical Industry (MOPI) as an Exco member and later its Executive Director for many years, even in recent years. He attempted to form the Malaysian Community Pharmacy Guild in the 80's. He continued to support MPS attending important events.
His untimely departure is a loss to pharmacy and the industry, and least to those who knew him who would sadly missed him.
