Greetings to dear members of Korean Academy of Child Health Nursing
Firstly, I would like to say that it is more right to show my appreciation personally to all of you who have selected me as 21st president. Please allow me to apologize and thank you at the same time by paper. Our academy was established in 1971 under the name of “Academy of Obstetrics & Pediatrics” which then changed to “Academy of Maternal and Child Health” in 1980. After that, we stood alone at 1994 as “Korean Academy of Child Health Nursing” and, up to now, we have made the utmost effort to grow and improve the specialty of child health nursing.
I would like to, especially, show my deep appreciation and respect to Young Soo Ha, our 1st president of the academy and all of our seniors. Furthermore, I thank Kap-Chul Cho, previous president, for his hard work. Cho has made an impressive contribution for the growth of our academy, which is worthy of close attention over 2 years.
