The ECTS congress expands and provides the ECTS committed members with an exciting pre-congress day on Friday 10 May 2019. This day is dedicated to a number of activities that will delight the delegates in a lively and friendly atmosphere where they can attend many events and learn the most recent discoveries in the calcified tissue field. We will start with a reach National Day for delegates from Hungary and neighbouring Countries, to liaise with and learn from national and international peers. The programme will then move through the ECTS/ICCBH workshop on Rare Bone Diseases, which will have the aim to provide the knowledge to facilitate the transition of the medical needs of patients from childhood to adulthood. Eleven working groups on several basic/translational and clinical topics will follow in three slots that will give delegates the opportunity to be updated in their respective fields of research by excellent experts in extremely interactive sessions. The ECTS is continuing the traditional East meets West programme, which will start in the pre-congress day with the Symposium on Mobility & Longevity, in which representatives from China, Japan, Korea, Europe and USA will compare and discuss the points of view of Eastern and Western Countries. Thanks to the effort of the ECTS Academy, the day will end with the Next Gen Synergy Session dedicated to the Next Generation of scientists that are growing in Europe and in Eastern Countries.
Another good reason to attend the pre-congress day is to start the next main congress day early in the morning. We will open the programme on 11 May 2019 with the Clinical update which will also include the East and West perspectives on how to Optimise drug dosing and on how to Efficiently run a Fracture Liaison Service. The basic/translational update will include a scientific update and a technological update focused on innovative imaging, which will be followed by a hands-on demonstration. Meets the Expert sessions and Educational Symposia are also in the pipeline within the exciting main congress programme that you will find here and in the ECTS App that you can download here.
