Representing SASOP at the APA, New York (3-7 May 2014)

A SASOP delegation attended the recent annual APA meeting at the Javitz Convention Centre and other venues in New York, from 3-7 May 2014. This visit was concurrent with the launch of the congress website and more than 3000 bookmark flyers were distributed at the different venues of the congress.

Dr Gerhard Grobler, Prof Solly Rataemane and myself met with officials of the APA about liaison between the two organizations, as well as about the arrangements for the WPA International Congress in Cape Town in 2016. These included the new President of the APA, Prof. Paul Summergrad and the recently appointed CEO of the APA, Dr. Saul Levin.

We were also able to meet, amongst other, with Prof. Dinesh Bhugra and Prof. Tarek Okasha from the WPA, as well as representatives from the Australian, European and Japanese societies of psychiatry.
