The honorable Editors-in-Chief, Dr. Bai from ZS Hospital Fudan University, and Dr. Chavannes from Leiden University Medical Center, shared their knowledge of the field and spoke in detail about the journal’s scope, its mission and objectives. Alicia Lee, the publisher of Clinical eHealth, completed the introduction by providing the publisher’s insights on the rationale for this timely new journal.

Sinai in New York and Dr. Kwun Fong from the Prince Charles Hospital and University of Queensland School of Medicine, also showed great support to the journal, sharing their perspectives on the launch as well as their heartfelt advice.
The launch event concluded in a harmonious atmosphere following an awards ceremony, during which Alicia issued certificates to the Editors in appreciation of their early contributions to the journal and to the field at large.
