It is with the utmost pleasure that I invite you to join us for the 2017 Annual Congress of PReS in Athens.
We are extremely happy that Athens, the birthplace of so much culture and science, will host PReS for our 24th conference. In these 24 years much progress has been made in pediatric rheumatology. We moved from gold injections and steroid to biologics and biomarkers. But many challenges remain; not only for clinicians that take care of patients and for scientists that try to unravel these complex diseases but foremost for patients that have to cope with the burden of disease every day. We still have much work to do!
I am convinced that the inspirational environment of Greek culture will once again stimulate vibrant and lively discussions between professionals, scientists and patients that may lead to new collaborations, idea’s and initiatives that will shape the field of paediatric rheumatology.
President of PReS
On behalf of the Paediatric Rheumatology European Society, as well as the Organizing Committee and the Scientific Committee, I would kindly like to invite you at the 24th European Paediatric Rheumatology Congress (PReS 2017), which will be held from September 14th to September 17th 2017 in Athens, Greece. The Congress will take place at the Megaron Athens International Conference Center (MAICC), located at the heart of the city of Athens, just minutes away from its historic center.
Continuing the successful trend of past Congresses, the PReS 2017 Congress will feature presentations of some of the most recent research and trials, and robust debates on the clinical challenges paediatric rheumatologists face today, whilst we are expecting practice-changing abstracts and timely data to be presented. Moreover, the Congress will provide unique opportunities to network with leadership in Paediatric Rheumatology and enjoy enlightened and innovative learning experiences that highlight the most up-to-date, evidence-based developments in the field!
