Dear Friends and Colleagues
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to APLAR Symposium 2011, to be held in Taipei, on the 15-17 April 2011.
Adding a biennial Symposium to the well-established APLAR Congress provides us with a much needed annual platform to disseminate the latest diagnostic and therapeutic information to improve disease outcomes.
The Symposium provides us with an additional opportunity to meet and discover advances in diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. The Organizing Committee under the under the leadership of Professor Shue-Fen Luo has drawn up a comprehensive and contemporary scientific programme themed “New Frontiers in Clinical Rheumatology”. It aims to provide a multidisciplinary approach to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of common musculoskeletal disorders and will focus mainly on newer technologies and therapies in the treatment of these conditions.
I hope you will take this opportunity to join with your colleagues from around the world in Taiwan for what promises to be a stimulating and intellectually enriching Symposium.
Prof. Rohini Handa
President of APLAR
