WONCA EMR conference in Beirut in March

The sixth regional WONCA East Mediterranean region conference will be held from March 21- 23, 2019 in the Phoenicia Hotel, Beirut Lebanon. It will be hosted by the Lebanese Society of Family Medicine.

The theme of the conference “Bridging Gaps and Paving Future” was chosen to illustrate the important role that family medicine can play in providing universal health coverage at all times. The scientific program is quite rich and varied covering all age groups: from assessment of speech delay in children, to counselling adolescents about their sexual identity, to updates on the management of non-communicable diseases, to evaluation of male menopause, and delirium in the elderly. There are also sessions on providing comprehensive care like integrative medicine and palliative care and others guiding the primary care physician to deliver appropriate care in the era of e-health.

This year family medicine will be 40 years of age in the region. The program will thus include panel discussions of family medicine achievements, lessons learnt and way forward to achieve universal health coverage. Several working groups will also be launching their activities in the EMR region through workshops and networking.

Register before March 4, 2019 for discounted fee.
