Welcome message from ACFS






"Dear Esteemed Participants,

Welcome to the 10th Asian Conference for Frailty and Sarcopenia. As the President of the Asian Association for Frailty and Sarcopenia and co-lead of the Asian Working Group for Sarcopenia, it is my honor to extend a warm welcome to all of you.

This conference is a testament to our collective commitment to advancing research and interventions in frailty and sarcopenia. It is a platform where we share knowledge, foster collaborations, and inspire each other to push the boundaries of what we know and can do. Over the years, we have made significant strides in understanding and managing frailty and sarcopenia. However, there is still much to be done. The challenges we face are complex, but I am confident that with our combined efforts, we can overcome them. Let us use this conference as an opportunity to learn from each other, to challenge our thinking, and to forge new paths in our quest to improve the lives of those affected by frailty and sarcopenia.

The Asian Working Group for Sarcopenia (AWGS) has made significant contributions to the field of sarcopenia research. The AWGS 2019 consensus update on sarcopenia diagnosis and treatment has been particularly impactful. AWGS is working on the update of AWGS in 2024 and is planning to move from sarcopenia diagnosis and treatment towards muscle health promotion.

Once again, welcome to the 10th Asian Conference for Frailty and Sarcopenia. I look forward to the fruitful discussions and the innovative ideas that will undoubtedly emerge from this gathering."

Let us also congratulate on the progress we have made over the past decade and celebrate the milestones achieved. Yet, let us remain vigilant in our pursuit of excellence, recognizing that much work lies ahead.

I am confident that the insights gained from this conference will propel us towards greater advancements for healthy longevity and improve the quality of life for millions affected by frailty and sarcopenia across the globe.

Wishing you a productive and inspiring conference experience.

"Frailty and sarcopenia, the most studied geriatric syndromes within the community of geriatrics and gerontology, are created with the ambitions of healthy aging by academic scholars and health care providers."

Over the past 9 Asian conferences for frailty and sarcopenia have witnessed the progressively continuing success by increasing participations of all sectors. Thailand, one the most visited countries in the world, is much honored to host the 10th Asian conference 2024 at Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok.

Apart from the active participants from many world renown scientists in the field, the participants would have a great opportunity to be involved in the upcoming AWGS Consensus Update on diagnosis and treatment. The ultimate goals, therefore, are to uplift the standard of research, diagnosis and treatment for the whole region.

Indulge yourself to the Thai hospitality and Thai cuisine during a very memorable stay in Thailand.
