Let me wish you all a Happy New Year; 2017.
The Society of Sports & Exercise Medicine Malaysia has added another feather to its fully loaded cap. We have just published a Coffee Table Book and it was officially launched on the 5th November 2016 at a glittering grand function before a select audience of 500 guests including top representatives and consultants in sports & exercise medicine from 13 countries. It was indeed a grand occasion. The Coffee Table Book was a quality production project of SSEMM for 2016, which was made to honour HRH The Sultan of Pahang who helmed the post of President Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) for 30 years from 1984-2014. HRH played a pivotal role in transforming football in Malaysia into a more professional and modernized game.
SSEMM is proud to honor HRH as the Royal Legend of Football.
That occasion was memorable when 12 countries responded to become the Founding Members of the World Society of Sports & Exercise Medicine (WSSEM). Jointly, we hope to expect more participants with the members of the WSSEM for the 1M-World Congress in Sports & Exercise Medicine 2017 (1M-WCSEM 2017) from 17th-19th November, conjointly organized with International Society for Sport Traumatology of the Hand (ISSPORTH).
What make this year unique is that each participating countries must showcase their specialty, their abstracts and about their countries by taking an exhibition booth. The best booth and the best presentation shall be awarded special prices.
I hereby welcome both local and foreign participants to make 2017 a year of sports excellence.
