Dear CHPAMS Members and Friends,

As the President of the China Health Policy and Management Society (CHPAMS) for 2018-2020, first please let me thank Dr. Zhuo Chen and his Board of Directors for two years of wonderful leadership and services to our community! In the meantime, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new leadership team who took office on July 1, 2018. I encourage you to get to know more about our new team via

The new leadership team would like to continue our mission of fostering and promoting scholarly exchanges among CHPAMS members and with the Chinese public health community, and to improve health and health equity among Chinese people within and outside of China. In the coming two years, we plan to form a Committee on Professional Development to facilitate career development and mentoring for CHPAMS members at different career stages.

We will continue our flagship programs such as the CHPAMS biennial conference, CHPAMS member gatherings during major conferences worldwide, CHPAMS Inspiration Award, and CHPAMS Rising Scholar Best Paper Award. In addition, in year 2019 we plan to co-organize some high quality academic events with world-class research institutions. More details of these meetings and events will be announced later.

Members and friends of CHPAMS, you are our greatest asset. We could not succeed without your continued support. As your academic and professional association, we sincerely ask you to stay engaged, help us shape the future of the Society, and advance population health research, practice, and education in China. We look forward to working closely with you for the years ahead of us!
