I hope you and your family are doing well during this COVID-19 pandemic. This is a very difficult time for all of us. While many of us are trying to return to normal way of life as we are recovering from this pandemic, others are still suffering as the incidence of COVID-19 continue to rise depending on what part of the world we live in. Certainly, COVID-19 pandemic is still active and continue to affect all of us in the world.

As you are aware, the WSRM Executive Council decided that in the best interest of our organization and for the safety of our members, to postpone the 11th congress of the WSRM to June 1th - 4th , 2022, in Cancun, Mexico. I would like to thank Dr. Eric Santamaria and his organizing team who had to make adjustments and are working hard to plan wonderful scientific and social programs in beautiful Cancun, and I expect it will be the best WSRM meeting ever.

I would also like to express my special thanks to Dr. David Chiu, who will be hosting the 12th WSRM meeting in NYC, May, 2023, as originally planned, for his graciousness in supporting the postponing of the 11th WSRM meeting to 2022 due to this unique historical situation. I am certain that it will be a sensational meeting and I ask that we all show our appreciation to Dr. David Chiu and do our best to support the 12th WSRM meeting in the “Big-Apple”.

This is a very unique time in our history with unique challenges that none of us will ever forget. While these times have been difficult and challenging, I do believe that we will learn valuable lessons from these events that will make us stronger and our society better. Thank you and wish you and your family the best. Please be safe.
