COPD MED2 International Symposium 2018

(23 - 24 Kasım 2018)


Owing to its progressively increasing prevalence, COPD is a global problem anticipated to take the top third place among the most frequent causes of mortality in 2020.

Also as an important cause of increasing health expenditures in many societies, it has become the focus of research particularly in the recent years. Accumulation of rapidly increasing scientific knowledge in the field of COPD cannot be adequately reflected to the clinicians at general congress and meeting environments. This symposium will provide the possibility of sharing and discussing many topics with the participants in detail and depth.

COPD-Med Symposium - organized by Turkish Respiratory Society (TRS) and Italian Association of Hospital Pneumologists (AIPO)

With its scientific program in which speakers from eight Mediterranean and East European countries have partaken besides Turkey and Italy, this symposium can be a good initiative for the constitution of a regional scientific platform. Being held in the city which is known as the first university city in Europe, this meaningful meeting will leave indelible memories in the minds of all participants.

Here are the main details as the first step:
Meeting venue and date: Bologna- Italy, 23-24 November
