Activities

In October 2017, CHPAMS started the nomination process for the 2017 Inspiration Award. A five-member Award Selection Committee was formed, made up of CHPAMS President Dr. Zhuo (Adam) Chen and four distinguished researchers. We received highly qualified nominations for the Award.  After deliberation, the Committee agreed that the nominees, although strong candidates, fell short of meeting the high expectation for the distinguished Inspiration Award. Therefore, the Committee regretfully chose not to select an awardee for the 2017 CHPAMS Inspiration Award.

2016 CHPAMS Volunteer Award

It is our honor to announce the 2016 CHPAMS Volunteer Award winner, Dr. Jing Hao! Jing has been instrumental in many fronts of CHPAMS's activities. She, joint with Drs. Kun Zhang, Donglan Zhang, and Muzi Na, started the CHPAMS Monthly newsletter and demonstrated her initiative and leadership in the process. Jing also played a critical role in membership development, hosting CHPAMS reception or gathering events at APHA 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as AcademyHealth 2015. She has helped in conducting interviews with Professor Michael Phillips and others. While Jing may have to retreat from some of CHPAMS activities for a little while to spend more time with the new addition to her family, we would like to recognize her for what she has done for CHPAMS, wish her well and hope she will be back soon!
