Speakers for WONCA Europe in Istanbul in October

At our twentieth conference, WONCA Europe invites you to look into the future from the perspective of the past.

Come to Istanbul to share what you think about family physicians, patients, diseases, health systems and WONCA with your colleagues from the speaker's corner.

BRITE: BRIng your Thoughts and Experience - for the first time gives a chance to all participants to be a speaker at the conference. If you have something to say, an experience to share, a question to ask, you can submit your BRITE in the abstract system.

Do not forget the deadline to be a BRITE speaker is now extended until May 22, 2015.
