Prof. Dr. Alberto K. Oehling
It is with gread sadness that I let you know, my friends, that Alberto K. Oehling passed away a couple of hours ago. Alberto Oehling was one of the most relevant clinicians and researchers for over 3 decades, since 1970. I had the privilege to train with him and he was not only my mentor, but also, he warmly called me son. He was my second father. When I was young, I heard that if you want to see the future, you have to stand up over the shoulders of your predecessors. He was a lighthouse for many young fellows from all over the world. During the last INTERASMA Congress in Mexico 2014, we paid homage to his outstanding career as a signal of gratitude. I will miss him.
Es con un gran dolor que les hago saber, amigos, que hace un par de horas falleció Alberto K. Oehling. Alberto K. Oehling fue uno de los clínicos e investigadores más importantes durante 3 décadas, desde 1970. Tuve el privilegio de formarme con él, quien no sólo fue mi mentor, sino que también, amablemente me llamó hijo. Era mi segundo padre. Cuando era joven, escuché decir que si quieres ver el futuro, tienes que pararte sobre los hombros de tus predecesores. Alberto K. Oehling fue un faro para muchos jóvenes colegas de distintas partes del mundo. Durante el último congreso de INTERASMA en México 2014, rendimos homenaje a su destacada carrera como agradecimiento. Lo voy a extrañar.

INTERASMA in the XXI CenturyHighlights of WCA 2014 Mexico City
INTERASMA will celebrate its 60th Anniversary during WCA 2014 in Mexico City. INTERASMA is an evolving organization and it is ready to cope with new challenges in terms of clinical practice, education, communication, and research in the field of asthma. This process started in Montecarlo, in the principality of Monaco, during WCA 2008 chaired by G. Walter Canonica and Carlos E. Baena-Cagnani and it has continued through the years, with WCA 2010 in Athens led by Ronald Dahl and the remarkable WCA 2012 in Quebec chaired by Louis-Philippe Boulet.
The new website, the new INTERASMA journal “Asthma Research and Practice”, the manifestos in collaboration with WAO, Ga2len, SLaai, etc. and other initiatives are also part of this revitalizing process.
We have wonderful reasons to celebrate INTERASMA 60th anniversary. INTERASMA would also like to thank the founders and those predecessors that have kept the Global Asthma Association alive.
Join us in this celebration!
During the Congress in Mexico and in consonance with INTERASMA philosophy, four keynote award lectures will take place, one per day.
In one of them, Professor Ronald Dahl will receive the Albert K. Oehling INTERASMA Award for his outstanding career in the fields of Pulmonology, Asthma and Allergy.
Prof. Albert K. Oehling was Secretary General and later President of INTERASMA and he also presided the World Congress of Asthma in Barcelona.
Through this session, INTERASMA would like to express its gratitude to these two outstanding clinicians, researchers and leaders.
