Dr. Mulligan Helps Organize EM in Southeast Asia

Terry Mulligan, DO, MPH, served as an advisor to the first meeting of emergency medicine executives representing the 10 member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The purpose of the meeting, held in Bangkok in mid-September, was to begin to integrate emergency health care resources in the region, to develop and coordinate training and research opportunities, and to lay the foundation for the formation of the ASEAN Emergency Medicine Network. ASEAN was formed in 1967 as an economic and political organization that encourages the region’s economic growth, standard of living, and international collaboration. Its members are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
