Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief Prof. Stefano Omboni, the 2nd Editorial Board meeting of Connected Health was successfully held on April 12nd 2022. 18 Editorial Board members participated in the meeting.
The whole meeting was divided into four parts:
1. Editor-in-Chief gave a welcome speech;
2. Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Office jointly introduced Connected Health's current development and future plan, and expressed gratitude to Editorial Board members for their contributions to the journal;
3. Free discussion;
4. Summary and conclusion.
In the free discussion part, we are impressed by members' positive replies. Most Editorial Board members all stated that Connected Health should publish high-quality articles to ensure the long-term benign development of the journal. In addition, in order to better cope with the current international situation, Prof. Stefano Omboni and other Editorial Board strongly appealed for more young scholars to join our Youth Editorial Board to share advanced opinions in the related field.
In the end, we are extremely grateful to Prof. Stefano Omboni for his dedicated contributions to the development of the journal, from publishing to promoting, etc. At the same time, the Editorial Office of Connected Health would like to thank all Editorial Board members for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend this meeting and contributing their creativity and ideas to the journal. Believe that with the effort of such an influential and excellent team, we will build Connected Health into a diversified, open platform as we expected.
