Message from
the 60th JSPNM Congress President

Welcome Message

I am honored to be appointed Congress President for the prestigious and commemorative 60th Annual Congress of the Japanese Society of Perinatal and Neonatal Medicine. With the generous cooperation and support of our members, I hope to make this a rewarding and productive event.

Although simple, the theme of this academic meeting is “SHIN: Perinatal and Neonatal Medicine.”
We have chosen the term “SHIN” to express several meanings.

  • Truth (Shinjitsu): Let us gather the latest scientific evidence and review perinatal medicine.
  • Deepening (Shinka): Let us reflect more deeply on our daily medical practice that we have taken for granted.
  • New (Arata): Let us draw on our knowledge and experience and discuss new medical technologies and medical research.Synergy: Let us collaborate across specialties and professions to create further opportunities.

For several years during the COVID-19 pandemic, organizing a conventional academic meeting where people could gather and engage in face-to-face discussions was a challenge. This time, we are striving for a conference style that not only enables attendees to attend presentations and participate in discussions on-site but also to participate remotely or learn on-demand at their own pace.

We have planned a wide range of guest lectures, educational presentations, symposia, workshops, and committee projects. Additionally, we anticipate receiving a large number of general abstract submissions, which is the heart of the conference, and hope that many participants will join us and enjoy the conference.

We look forward to seeing you all at Osaka International Convention Center from July 13 to 15, 2024.

Kazuko Wada MD
The 60th Annual Congress President
