2008 APAMSA Region II (NY/NJ) Conference

Welcome to the 2008 APAMSA Region II Conference!  This year’s theme is "Asian and Pacific Islander Pediatric Health."

The conference will feature:
•    speakers on international pediatric work and mental health
•    interactive human simulator workshop
•    interactive Traditional Chinese Medicine workshop
•    lunch and dinner buffet
•    after-party with fellow medical students in New York City

This event should be a great experience for anyone interested in pediatrics, global health, and/or Asian Pacific American health issues. 

Please check back periodically for event updates!  Thank you, and we look forward to meeting you at the conference. 



Registration Fee: $20.99 (food / social event included)
Deadline: Monday, March 26, 2008

Attendees may select "Late Registration" after the registration deadline has passed until Tuesday, April 1, 2008, but this will cost an additional $10. Registration after April 1 and up to the day of the conference is considered "Walkup" registration and will cost $41.  Thus, it is to your advantage to register early.

Because AECOM and MSSM are financially co-sponsoring the conference, there are a limited number of free tickets available for participants from these two schools.  After these have been ordered, students from these schools will be able to register at the reduced price of $10.99 per ticket until the registration deadline, after which the Late Registration and Walkup prices will apply.

For those who wish to register offline or pay via cash or check, please use the mail-in registration form. Send the completed form with your registration fee (cash or check) to Melanie Liu, 50 East 98th Street, 7G3, New York, NY 10029.  Checks should be made payable to Melanie Liu and must be postmarked by March 24, 2008 in order to ensure that it will arrive before the date of the conference.  Please note that subsidized and late registrations must be done online.  It is also advised that you send an email to Melanie Liu (melanieliu329@gmail.com) once you have mailed your form and check so that she will know to look out for them.
