Welcome message from APKASS President and Congress Chairman

Dear APKASSmembers, friends and colleagues,


This is an announcement of the academic plan for 2022. It has been almost 2 years since the pandemic of COVID-19. The APKASSannual meeting had been postponed twice due to travel restrictions of the delegates and speakers. We do not know when the pandemic will completely end. Nonetheless, we can not let this situation destroy our academic opportunities. The next APKASSmeeting is now confirmed to be held on September 29 – October 1, 2022. The venue will be at PEACH conventional hall, Pattaya, Thailand as was previously planned. The format will be either a face to face meeting or hybrid meeting, depending upon the situation. The hybrid meeting will be reserved for the countries that still have travel restrictions. This time we will no longer postpone the meeting. The next meeting of APKASSafter Thailand will be held in China.


Chanakarn Phornphutkul MD.

TOSSM President and Congress Chairman
