It is my great honor to start my term as the President of the American Association of Chinese Rehabilitation Physicians (AACRP). I would like to thank our previous leaders for bridging our Chinese-American physiatrists into one family, making us a unique organization striving to serve as a network for scientific activity, educational courses, and scholar exchanges for physiatrists across the Pacific Ocean. Through the dedicated effort by our previous leadership team and members, AACRP has truly been our dream platform.
AACRP will continue to enhance friendship and networking among our members; to promote Chinese physiatrists to publish their innovative state-of-art technologies, novel scientific findings, and clinical study results; to co-organize educational and scientific symposium in China through working closely with Chinese institutions, hospitals, industries, and associations of physical medicine and rehabilitation; to facilitate young physiatrists to obtain clinical training in American institutions; and lastly, to bridge physiatrists from two countries for meaningful exchange and collaboration in research, education, and clinical training.
I would like to thank you for your ongoing support, participation, and passion for implementing the important initiatives listed above, and for helping us take it beyond. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with ideas to make us even better!
Hong Wu, M.D., M.S.
