The 1st AAPCHS Online Annual Meeting will be held on MAY 9th, SUN!
March 23, 2021
Dear AAPCHS members and friends,
Launched in 2019, the Asian Association for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery (AAPCHS) scheduled its very first annual meeting for early February, 2020; however, the entire world facing the COVID-19 “crisis” made us postpone the important opportunity. But there is always a glimmer of hope. Seemingly and fortunately, the distribution of the vaccines has slowly been improving circumstances; therefore, we decided to hold the first annual meeting of AAPCHS online on Sunday, May 9th, 2021.
Since we haven’t been able to hold an academic meeting where participants gather on-site since last year, many online seminars and web lectures are being held. We thought about what we needed to do to become a well-supported society and decided to organize the program of the meeting on what Asian pediatric cardiovascular surgeons want to see and know. We sent out a questionnaire to all AAPCHS members and some other doctors and received many positive responses. Thank you so much.
The program will consist of video sessions dealing with surgical skills. We will update the program on this website as soon as we have new information, so please check back from time to time.
We hope you and your family are doing well during this difficult time.
With best regards,
Kisaburo Sakamoto, President of AAPCHS
Bing Jia, President of the 1st AAPCHS Annual Meeting
