Due to several requests and asking about the NATMA Japan Kyushu Tour and Taiwan Visiting Tour, I would like to let you know the current circumstances here:
our Japan tour is still full and no any openings at this time, but last few days due to the different special reasons we have several cancellations for the NATMA Delegates Taiwan Medical Progress Exchange Tour 11/05 – 11/12/17, although we have no problem to fill the group and buses at present, but if you are still interesting in joining the group, please let me know as soon as possible. We also have a female member would like to get a female roommate for Taiwan tour, thank you!

Sorry if I did not answer your questions right away, bc I am still in a very busy practice, I will be either in the surgeries, hospital rounds or in the clinic during the day, therefore I will try my best to answer your questions when I get time or in the evening, please be patient and thanks for your understanding!
Have a wonderful day!

NATMA 2017 FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP

NATMA 2017 Guatamala Medical Mission

Dear NATMA members and friends, 大家收信平安!

NATMA 2016 的年會已於10月21號至23號在 Bellagio, Las Vegas舉行,共有200多人參加盛會,那是一個圓滿落幕的NATMA年會。10月23號至26號的會後峽谷旅遊也是非常美滿的結束,我們大家一起享受美景和度過美好的時光。

我非常感謝有這麼多會員和家屬及朋友們的參與和支援。我們的創會會長周烒明和夫人吳秀惠醫師還有多位前總會長,以及F A P A的前總會長樊豐中醫師也前來參加,這更讓年會增填風光。 我們更高興的是有許多位的第二代醫師熱心參與NATMA 的活動,去年有15位2G加入我們永久會員的行列。

2016年的12月底沈裕明醫師領隊到緬甸義診,他們非常辛苦但是辦得非常成功,而且我深信他們不會氣餒,一定會再接再厲,再度前往義診的。

2017年的3月4日到12日,許宗邦醫師領隊的瓜地馬拉義診團總共61人參加,包括目前總會長我自己還有兩位前總會長王政卿醫師和林榮松醫師,還有很多位年輕的團員們浩浩蕩蕩的成功的完成了預定的任務,總共治療4000多位病人,外科開了35個刀,牙科,針灸科都辛苦了他們各做了四百多個病例。我們很感謝許宗邦醫師夫婦的精心策劃以及不辭辛苦的功勞,也衷心的感謝臺灣駐 Guatemala 的大使館的鼎力協助以及 Guatemala 第一夫人辦公室的幫忙,使得我們的義診活動更加得心應手。

NATMA的下一個活動就是到West Caribbean 的 cruise and meeting, 那是將在4月22到29日舉行,目前為止有近百位成員報名參加了,希望參加的朋友們請和我們的 agent 連絡,詳情等我們回來以後再做報告。

我們非常遺憾和可惜的是在這段時間內我們痛失了兩位敬愛的長者,一位是我們第三屆前總會長廖坤塗醫師,另一位是第八屆的前總會長游祥修醫師,我們在此再度默哀他們,也祝福他們的家人平安。

我們現在正著手準備10月底到11月初的日本和台灣之行。當資料比較齊全的時候再向大家報告。

敬祝大家身心愉快平安喜樂!
