Welcome Message by Regional Ambassador
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the National University of Singapore and the National University Health System, it is my great pleasure to host the Association of Academic Health Centers International (AAHCI) Southeast Asia Regional Office.
Membership in the AAHCI focuses on bringing together like-minded institutions that share the academic health centre missions with a vision of advancing and applying knowledge to enhance health in the communities and regions that they serve.
AAHCI has a growing network of academic health centre leaders worldwide providing key insights into issues affecting population health. It is through international collaboration and the sharing of knowledge that we build effective global institutions.
Southeast Asia is an area of significant growth and development, and the promotion of the academic health centre concept is timely. The Regional Office will serve as a hub for Southeast Asia, providing AAHCI networking activities and knowledge sharing. This will enable AAHCI to connect more effectively with its members to meet local needs.
My Regional Advisory Group and I look forward to welcoming you as AAHCI members!
With warmest regards,
