Dear All:

The APSR has been historically weighting the importance of education for respiratory field to both local researchers and sometimes the public in Asian Pacific region. As the name ESAP; Educational Seminar of the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology indicates, the purpose is to improve and disseminate contemporary state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in the study and practice of respiratory medicine in the region by inviting the top class specialists from various respiratory fields, and organizing educational seminars.

I am very much delighted that ESAP Manila will be held at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria Hotel in Quezon City, Metropolitan Manila, Philippines at 6-7 August 2014 to be hosted by the Philippine College of Chest Physicians; PCCP, one of our en bloc member societies we are closely working with.
