Dear Members of the Korean Foot and Ankle,
I wish you and your family good health and happiness in the new year.
As our society celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, it has grown into a global society and is proud of its international research level and activities. These proud achievements and developments were made with the sweat and passion of past presidents, executives, and all members who have worked hard for the advancement of society, so I take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude and respect.
This year, in line with the globalization of society, we carried out a major reorganization of the website. The English website has been particularly improved in a new form. Through the completely redesigned English website, active academic exchanges with overseas academic societies will take place, and foreign doctors will be able to more easily obtain information on the regular academic conference programs and activities of our society. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the members of the Public Relations Committee, including Chairman Su-young Bae, for their willingness to undertake the improvement of this website for their efforts and sacrifices.
During my tenure, I will make sure to achieve the following three things:
First, based on the footsteps of society over the past 30 years, I will do my best to take another leap forward for the next 30 years.
Second, I will create an atmosphere for members to actively research and develop various educational programs to support their research activities.
Lastly, I will do my best to make this society the center of the world by encouraging the activities of regional research groups to revitalize member exchanges, and further expanding international academic exchanges.
To achieve this, we ask for your active participation and support.
The President of the Korean Foot and Ankle Society
