Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, the EuGMS has dedicated all its efforts to support the geriatrics community worldwide.
We will keep the most pragmatic, coherent and ethical approach and transform this global situation into an active opportunity to stay committed and advance our mission:
The EuGMS Annual Congresses will be postponed for one year, moving Athens to 2021, London to 2022 and Helsinki to 2023.
In 2020, the EuGMS Congress will go virtual and become the key digital event in the field of geriatric medicine and health services for the ageing population.
The EuGMS digital congress “COVID-19: LESSONS AND CHALLENGES FOR HEALTH CARE FOR OLDER ADULTS” will figure the main geriatric themes and the COVID-19 impact on older people health. So just save the date! October 7-9!
Join us! You will find wide new possibilities for multidimensional learning, innovative web tools, global audience, target topics and a fully virtual exhibition area.
ABSTRACTS NEWS: deadline for submission is extended to June 10th and we have opened a new call dedicated only to COVID-19 related topics.
Your role is essential: today’s future-thinking is tomorrow’s change-maker!
In my role of the EuGMS President, together with our Academic Director Mirko Petrovic, the Executive Board and our PCO Aristea, we will be happy to welcome you!
Prof. Athanase Benetos
