Chairman's Message

cm Welcome to the NUS Medicine International Council (NIC). The NIC is designed to inform, engage, and even entertain by providing a forum for open discussion of the critical issues of the day against a back-drop of the latest innovations in medical science, health policy and other areas of interest. NIC members are invited to provide advice on strategic priorities, serve as ambassadors to raise the visibility of the School, and to make full use of the NIC process to stay abreast of, and help shape, leadership thinking and outcomes.

The future belongs to the connected. The NIC allows members to get better connected to people in different societies and backgrounds, all of whom share the intellectual curiosity to look at today's issues in a new light.

Hope to see you at our next meeting.

Warm regards,

Frank Lavin
Former US Ambassador to Singapore
