馬來西亞高等教育部副部長YB Dato’ Dr. Hou Kok Chung何國忠博士 於2012 世界中華自然醫學高峰論壇獻詞
I am glad to see that the “2012 World Chinese Natural Medicine Forum” cum “The 1st AANM Academician Summit” to be held in Malaysia.
Though it is co-organised by two non profit organisations from Malaysia and The U.S., yet it is international significant as the invited guests are from various countries. The academic standard is brought to a professional level as the speakers are scholars or professors from renowned universities and institutes.
I believed that this forum will hence promote the academic level of the natural medicine among related fields in this country, and the outcome of this forum will be much beneficial to the promotion of natural medicine education for us.
A powerful and prosperous country comes from a healthy national base. In view of the current situation of the society, most people are rely on western medicine / drugs in controlling their illness and there are various of substandard prescriptions or unqualified consultant giving advice to the public. A common knowledge of wellness is necessary to be spread and strengthen among the public. This will need to be started from an education for public awareness – to the public, health industries, and relevant academic department or graduates. The 2012 World Chinese Natural Medicine Forum provides an opportunity for lifelong learning and self-improvement to upgrade ourselves.
I am glad to learn that the Open University of Malaysia (OUM) and the (Taiwan) China University of Science and Technology are giving great support to the forum and academician summit. I look forward to seeing the Malaysia Association of Natural Medicine Education (MANME) to continuously promoting such public awareness and having further co-operation with relevant departments, working together contributing their efforts to the national health.
I wish to congratulate the success of this forum and academician summit.
