The CHPAMS Monthly is an e-newsletter of the China Health Policy and Management Society (CHPAMS). The Newsletter provides updates and activities related to CHPAMS and information of potential interest for CHPAMS members.

CHPAMS Activities

1.     New Board of Directors (2016- 2018):

CHPAMS has successfully completed our election for the 2016-2018 Board of Directors (BOD). While we transition to the new BOD, we want to thank the outgoing initial BOD (2014-2016). Under the leadership of the initial BOD, CHPAMS had many accomplishments, such as its incorporation as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the first CHPAMS Conference, the monthly newsletter "CHPAMS Monthly", the Jump-start Your Career Webinar series, contributions to West Lake Forum and Youth Forum, and numerous receptions and outreaches at various conferences and meetings. The term for the new BOD started on July 1, 2016 and will end on June 30, 2018. We look forward to more growth and development under the new leadership! 

2.     CHPAMS' participation in Westlake Youth Forum (Chengdu) on June 21-23, 2016. 

The Westlake Youth Forum is sponsored by China Medical Board and organized by Sichuan University to promote junior scholars' training in health policy and systems sciences and career development. CHPAMS sent seven overseas members to participate in the Forum. Drs. Lincoln Chen, Hai Yu, and Gordon Liu were recognized for their significant contributions and continuous support for CHPAMS, and mentoring of junior scholars in public health and health policy. CHPAMS hosted a membership reunion on June 21.
