It is with great pleasure that we invite all to participate in the XVI Latin American Thyroid Association Congress, which takes place in June 15 - 18, 2017, at the Windsor Barra Convention Center, in Rio de Janeiro. This will be the largest and most comprehensive event on the Thyroid field in Latin America.
We all know the difficulties that this multidisciplinary area ensures in both scientific and practical means, so we have organized, together with the Scientific committee, an event with a broad focus on the major thyroid pathologies, involving both basic and clinical topics.
On behalf of myself and the organizing committee, I am pleased to receive in Rio de Janeiro prominent international speakers in the field and count on the participation and engagement of all of you, so that our great mission contributes to the growth, enhancement of thyroid research in Latin America, and to the best assisted care to our patients.
I wish you all a great congress and hope you enjoy our beautiful city!
Welcome to Rio!!
Local Committee President
It is my biggest pleasure to invite you to Rio, one of the most wonderful cities ever, to attend the XVI Latin American Thyroid Society (LATS) Congress from 15-18th June 2017.
The reason I am inviting you to join us is because in this meeting you will be able to breathe the essence of the Thyroid research in Latin America.
The Scientific Committee has been working hard throughout this year to come up with a marvelous program which intends to cover the whole spectrum of clinical, translational and basic research. For this purpose the most relevant and trendy topics will be presented by researchers from our Latin American countries that are specialized on each of these fields.
The participation of 7 opinion leaders from Europe and USA will highlight this program and also give you the opportunity of a direct interaction with them.
Furthermore, some of the activities are planned to boost the participation of younger investigators in the discussion of clinical cases and debates.
This Congress also has the aim to strengthen our Latin American bonds and enable the communication among us in the midst of a delightful ambiance.
On behalf of the whole Scientific Committee we are really looking forward to meet you in Rio for the XVI LATS Congress.
President of the Scientific Committee
