Dear members, colleagues and friends,
We just had a wonderful annual meeting in Chicago! The meeting was held in Sushi
Taiyo Restaurant near Chicago famous Michigan Avenue. More than 120 people from
North America and China attended the meeting, which included scientific sessions,
special guest speeches, CASA committee reports, and an award ceremony. Those
speeches highlighted scientific achievements from CASA members and our Chinese
colleagues; promoted the academic exchanges and friendship among CASA, CSA, CAA, ASA and also among our CASA members, colleagues and friends; importantly
featured hardworking and accomplishments from our CASA committees.
The tradition of the annual CASA-CSA academic meeting started in 2003 and the
meeting of this year marked its ninth annual meeting. The meeting significantly
enhanced academic exchanges among the anesthesiologists from both China and
North America , especially among the anesthesiologists with Chinese background. We
are anticipating more academic collaborations among the anesthesiologists from
China and North America .
