Message from the President
It is an honor and privilege to serve as the President of Asian Federation of Sports Medicine (AFSM). I am humble and deeply grateful to the members and the office bearers in trusting me and providing me with this opportunity to lead the Federation.
In the beginning of the message, I want to say a few words in memory of Dr. Danish Zaheer. Dr. Zaheer was a valuable and highly respected member since the inauguration of AFSM. He had devoted much of his time in promoting sport medicine in Asia. During his decades of years serving in AFSM, he had played a leading role in advocating the development of the Association with dedication. We can never forget about his passion in guiding the Association. His enthusiasm and kindness will always be remembered with admiration.
To inherit the passion of Dr. Zaheer, our role in advancing sports medicine and sport sciences in the region is indisputable. AFSM was established under the leadership of its founding fatherssince 1990. Over recent years, AFSM has expanded rapidly, both in size and influence. The main objective of the AFSM is to foster the promotion of sports medicine in Asia. AFSM is a growing professional group and we are determined to bring our talents together and to maximize our regional advantages in facilitating exchanges through meetings, congress and keeping abreast of our professional development through this regional network.
Our I hope AFSM achieves leading advancement in the future with conjoint efforts of all members. There are much more we can do and it is confident that the office bearers would play an important role proactively in making this a reality.As the president of the APKASS, it will be my passion and duty to encourage and inspire all members with enthusiasm, ensure welcoming platform for clinical and scientific knowledge exchange, and associate the intersociety and international relationships.
