Hubert Lam Memorial Scholarship

In memory of Hubert Lam, his widow Pat and daughter Lara, owners of Skin Care Consultants, are presenting the Hubert Lam Memorial Scholarship to a skin care professional who advocates continuing education. The scholarship includes the Face & Body Northern California 2010 two-day Advanced Education Conference Program, two-day expo hall and Supplier Classes, plus $500 toward travel expenses to the show in San Jose, California, July 17–19, 2010.

Hubert Lam, who passed away suddenly in August 2008, was well-known and highly respected as both an entrepreneur and a doctor of Chinese medicine. He pioneered several technologies in the esthetic field, including permanent makeup, microdermabrasion and the Lam Probe. It was his fervent belief that continuing advanced education is critically important to motivate estheticians to succeed in the industry, and he constantly fought for the esthetician’s right to perform such treatments using advanced technologies.

This scholarship was created to keep his mission to educate the spa industry on the forefront. The Hubert Lam Memorial Scholarship will be presented to the skin care professional who wrote the most inspiring essay of 500 words on the topic of why postgraduate education is so important for personal growth in the esthetic industry. Judging will be conducted by the Skin Inc. magazine editorial team and the principals of Skin Care Consultants.
