GASTROCUBA2019  

VII CONGRESS OF THE  CUBAN SOCIETY OF GASTROENTEROLOGY 

MAY 27-31 | HAVANA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTER

2nd Pan-American Congress of Physiological Sciences

INVITATION

Just as Havana celebrates the 500th anniversary of its foundation, we are about to hold the 7th Congress of the Cuban Society of Gastroenterology, "GastroCuba´2019", from October 22nd through 25th, 2019, at the Havana International Conference Center, Cuba.

It will be the first occasion in which the Cuban gastroenterologists meet without physical presence of our founding fathers: professors Raimundo Llanio and Manuel Paniagua. With a renewing spirit and paying tribute to their memory, we have organized such an extraordinary event so as to show the best professional experience in the interest of digestive health.

 

We are delighted to know that many international colleagues are utterly willing to exchange their knowledge and experience for this specialty progress, and exhibit in these scenarios the new technologies and trends for their diagnosis and treatment. This will undoubtedly increase our membership.


We are pleased to invite you all, Cubans and foreigners, to meet at the Havana International Conference Center, in a real city with wonderful people. This city -with half a century of existence- will open its arms to warmly welcome you.

Organizing Committee President
