Dear STS Members and Colleagues,

STS is maintaining the quest for development and progress year after year. This annual scientific event is dedicated to a common problem that is affecting millions in our country and around the world. It is planned to have the most updated strategy on diagnosis and management of Asthma and COPD, as well as some selected hot topics in pulmonary medicine.

We are much appreciative to all our distinguished speakers and chairpersons.

My hope is that all those who are practicing physicians will make an effort to attend and benefit from this symposium.
