ABC Workshops in Travel Health, BGTHA Annual Conference 2013
Category: GP - Other
Date: October 12th 2013
Location: Mshed, Bristol BS1 4RN
This year's conference will once again take place in the Mshed, in its spectacular setting on the Bristol waterfront, which proved so popular last year. The general theme will be "Gastrointestinal Infection as a Global Problem and a Problem for Travellers".
As usual there will be plenary sessions with speakers who are acknowledged experts in their field, but this year we are introducing parallel sessions during which members will be able to attend either a scientific presentation or an ABC workshop on one of the basic elements of travel medicine, including malaria, travel vaccines, the travel consultation, guidelines and decision making. There will also be a question and answer session with a panel of speakers, with written questions for the panel being collected during the day's proceedings.
Registration will begin at 08.45 and the conference will begin at 09.30 with opening addresses from the BGTHA Chairman and President
The Annual General Meeting of the BGTHA will be held at the end of the morning session and the conference will close at 17.15.
