Translation Committee Update

Avraam Ploumis, MD
Translation Committee Chair

The Translation Committee’s main objective is to inform non-English patients and families on patient education materials of the Scoliosis Research Society curriculum. Currently on SRS website, 12 non-English languages are supported (with the coordination with the Website Committee) and this has been updated and extended this last year by the work of all 18 members of this Committee under the guidance of Bangping Qian, Past Chair.

Until now, 8 translation assignments in total of patient education material have been almost finished and new assignments (in coordination with the Patient Education Committee) will be sent out soon.

I am honored for the proposal to become Chair of the Translation Committee and hope to fulfill the requirements of this post.
