New Year Greetings from the President of CHPAMS


Year 2017 has been another amazing year for CHPAMS, we continue to grow our membership; hold high-quality webinars; publish monthly newsletters; and host policy-relevant and scientific discussions in our WeChat groups. We are proud of being part of this great community, CHPAMS. While we wave goodbye to 2017, we look forward to working with everyone to continue this journey to bridge between  public health and health policy communities in China and elsewhere, and to improve the health and health equity of Chinese people around the globe. We wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season and great success in 2018! --- Dr. Zhuo (Adam) Chen

CHPAMS Volunteer of the Year Award


Volunteers are the cornerstone of CHPAMS. Each year, we grant Volunteer of the Year Award to a volunteer for his/her excellent contributions to the organization. For 2017, we are pleased to announce Dr. Qian Shi as the CHPAMS Volunteer of the year! Dr. Shi is recognized because of her many exceptional contributions to CHPAMS. Particularly, she played a critical role in initiating and maintaining CHPAMS WeChat public platform that has become a major channel of outreach for CHPAMS. Dr. Shi went above and beyond in authoring, editing and publishing CHPAMS announcements and articles while leading a WeChat public account volunteer group.  In addition, she actively participated in many CHPAMS events and meetings, assisted with hosting CHPAMS online webinars, and organized members gathering at academic conferences. Congratulations, Dr. Shi!
