Summer School in Rotterdam

The third Summer School was a great success not only for its high educational quality but also for its social events.

The first Summer school was in Istanbul about “Pediatric emergencies” in 2009 and the second was on the boat around Greek Islands in 2011. It was a great opportunity for friendship of pediatric dermatologists and to share the experiences about genetic disorders and abnormalities of babies.

The third Summer School in Rotterdam's main subject was allergy in children, in addition to main subject a course on hemangiomas and other presentations about other diseases were very helpful to share newest knowledge about pediatric dermatology.

I want to congratulate dear Flora de Waard-van der Spek and her team for this great job.

Rotterdam was cold and rainy but the atmosphere of meeting was very warm. The participants were listened Flora’s very special and cordial speech about the retirement of Prof. Dr. Arnold Oranje, and the poem for him with teardrops at the beginning of gala dinner.

After this we sang together for him and shouted his name very loudly again and again: ARNOLD! ARNOLD!  …

Romantic tango of Arnold with his wife was unforgettable at the end of the night.

I want to congratulate and thank Arnold and Flora for unforgettable days in Rotterdam
