      On behalf of the Board of Directors of ASME we clearly state our pledge to support the medical educators, healthcare professions and students of Ukraine however possible within the expertise of ASME and its available resources. To this end, we would make available to the 12 Ukrainian Medical Schools, their staff and students institutional membership, and those medical educators and students that have fled personal membership of the Association, both at no cost for a period of 3 years.
