Millennium Vee Hotel, Taichung, Taiwan
Dear colleagues and guests:
On behalf of the organizing committee, I am very pleased to welcome you to attend the 9th Pan-Pacific Continence Society (PPCS) Meeting which will be held in Taichung, the third largest city in Taiwan, on September 12-13, 2014. The main scientific meeting will be held on September 13.
The main topic of this meeting is “ Doctrine of the Mean: from underactive to overactive; from retention to incontinence". This idea is inspired from old Chinese wisdom, Confucian philosophy. The philosophy emphasizes the importance of maintaining balance and harmony from different directions to a state of constant equilibrium. This balance concept is the same when managing the lower urinary tract dysfunction. To every functional urologist, we do our best to strengthen underactive bladder but weaken overactive bladder, relief obstruction but restore incontinence. Through our experiences sharing to get balance of lower urinary tract function, patients achieve satisfactory quality of life and we become good friends.
Taichung is an amazing city but few foreign travelers know it compared to Taipei and Kaohsiung. Taichung is located in the middle of western Taiwan with a population about 2.7million. This city is mixed with different cultures from southern and northern Taiwan. There are a lot of delicious foods, wonderful natural landscapes and landscapes and warm friendship in the Taichung basin. In 2013, Taichung was elected as the top 7 City by the lntelligent Community Form.
With best enthusiasms and hospitalitι we are looking forward to seeing you in the 9th Pan-Pacific Continence Society meeting in Taichung, Taiwan.
