Welcome address by the AOSNR President
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As the president of Asian-Oceanian Society for Neurorehabilitation, I am delighted to invite you to our 2nd Asia-Oceanian Congress for Neurorehabilitation, which will be held in Tagaytay City, Philippines on 8-10 August, 2017.
With the mission to advance the development and improve the quality of neurological rehabilitation across the Asia-Oceanian region, we successfully launched first congress in 2015 in Seoul, Korea.
Recently, neurorehabilitation is navigating a new terrain as the entire healthcare industry is undergoing unprecedented transformation, and there will be a huge surge in demand for neurorehabilitation. On top of that, our region has unique neurorehabilitation issues of our own.
We guarantee AOCNR 2017 will feature the highest quality of scientific programs with involvements of internationally renowned speakers that reflect the needs from multidisciplinary professions, and will be a platform for diverse social networking.
Please come and join us in Tagaytay City, and have a great time!
