EUGMS19

30 Sep EuGMS in Krakow

This year the 15th EuGMS Congress took place in the beautiful and historic Polish city of Krakow, from September 25 to 27. Over 1700 geriatrics experts and researchers from more than 60 different countries gathered to increase their know-how about Evidence Based Medicine in Geriatrics. Prof. Franz H. Messerli gave an eye-opening keynote lecture about the “challenges in the older patients: the rift between those who preach, those who teach and those who treat”.

A varied and attractive scientific programme highlighted state-of-the-art clinical practices, recent advances, new data and views from different stakeholders, in a format designed to encourage interaction.

EuGMS keeps going greener implementing a completely new and intuitive Congress App and replacing the old paper program with a pocket program which allowed the Society to save more than 1,000 kg of paper.
