  Welcome from MDS-AOS Chair Raymond Rosales

Raymond Rosales, MD, PhD
Quezon City, Philippines



It is my pleasure, as MDS-AOS Chair, to welcome you to the MDS-Asian and Oceanian Section. MDS-AOS is the premier organization dedicated to disseminating knowledge and understanding about Movement Disorders within the field of Neurology in Asia and the Oceanian region.

I have been with MDS since 2003, and started becoming actively engaged with the MDS-AOS leadership around 10 years ago when I began with the AOS education committee. At the time the Philippines had no representation in the AOS Leadership, and I realized if I wanted to change that then I had a responsibility to my community to get involved. Now that I am AOS Chair, I hope my legacy will focus on enticing others to become engaged with the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, so together we can build a more inclusive society. MDS has always been a source of education and professional networks, and combined with the friendships and warm collegial community has made my involvement with MDS a pleasure. During my term as AOS Chair, we will continue offering a variety of educational activities for neurologists, movement disorder specialists, and our allied health and neuroscience colleagues. Educational courses are the most important activities, and one of main aims is to involve more specialties and more countries.

Thank you for your continued interest and engagement in MDS-AOS activities.

With very best regards,

  Mission & Objectives
