We are pleased to announce the XVIII Latin American Thyroid Society Congress!
Unfortunately, in these difficult times dominated by the COVID 19 pandemic, we have been faced with the necessity to reinvent several activities, including holding a scientific congress. We all agree that there is no substitute for the human interaction that enriches the learning process, encouraging us to continue doing science, teaching, and caring for patients. Nevertheless, virtual Events have been very successful in helping exchange experiences and scientific updating and, even, to bring together colleagues and friends in a different way.
In this scenario, we are happy to announce and welcome you to the XVIII LATS congress. We are working hard on preparing a great event to share knowledge and experiences in the management of thyroid diseases. The scientific committee is developing an innovative, exciting, and evolving program focused on understanding and managing thyroid diseases. Professors, researchers, and key opinion leaders from all over the world will participate in conferences, symposia, round tables, clinical case discussions, meeting-the-professor, and oral/poster presentations. Not to forget that the virtual format will give us an excellent opportunity to reach a much larger audience of physicians and researchers in South America.
No one can miss it and we look forward to meeting you!
