The Chair’s message for...
The Connecticut Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists’ celebrated
its Third Decade as a Chapter on September 28th at The Maritime
Aquarium in Norwalk. We cocktailed and dined under the watchful eyes of
the prowling sharks and stingrays all the while The Randy Kemp Jazz trio
provided exhilarating musical entertainment as we all enjoyed an out of
this world experience.
As the Connecticut Chapter begins its Fourth Decade, the Chapter can
reflect on many interesting and entertaining presentations. In the Chapter’
s first 30 years, we have hosted Dr. Henry Lee – twice, Dr. Nicholas
Perricone, the accomplished medical doctor and winemaker Dr. Paul
DiGrazia, and many more! The September meeting with Dr. Charles Yarish
from the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at University of
Connecticut, was no different. The Chapter once again listened to another
exceptional speaker. The Chapter was truly fortunate to have a globally
renowned seaweed specialist as our speaker and guest. Thank you Dr.
Yarish for you passion for your profession. This passion you have for the
Long Island Sound and your research is truly inspiring.
As the year 2013 comes to a close, the last two events planned include
Dr. Nava Dayan as our October guest and Bob Dickson as our November
speaker. On October 15th, Dr. Nava Dayan is going to speak to our
members about the Skin’s Innate Immunity and Biota; Good Bacteria, Bad
Bacteria. The skin barrier is critical for your survival; it prevents the
escape of moisture from our bodies and protects our bodies from the
invasion by infections or toxic substances. Our skin is also a habitat for a
diverse population of microbiota. Dr. Nava Daya’s presentation will be of
interest as she will be discussing bacteria invasion and infections. This
will be Dr. Nava Dayan’s third presentation to the Chapter and I am
looking forward to an entertaining and educational experience, plus I like
the thought of bacteria invasions.
Our last event on November 19th will be hosted at Unilever in Trumbull. I
am very excited to have Bob Dickson, the owner and president of Dale
Carnegie Training of Western Connecticut as our guest. This is going to
be an inspirational event and will also be a great opportunity to learn
more about Dale Carnegie training.
The Connecticut Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists now enters
the Fourth Decade of its existence. The Chapter has had many great
presentations and speakers during the past 30 years. The Chapter’s
members are what make the Connecticut Chapter vital, strong and
sustainable for the next Three Decades. I personally have had a terrific
time interacting and learning from our members. I look forward to
learning from more of our members in the upcoming events. See you on
October 15th at the Water’s Edge at Giovanni’s in Darien.
