On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committee, I have the great honor and pleasure to invite you to participate in the 22nd Hellenic National Congress of Nephrology, which celebrates the 50 years from the foundation of the Hellenic Society of Nephrology, and it will be held from 13th to 16th May 2021.
The Congress will either be hybrid and will be held in Thessaloniki at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, or fully virtual depending on the course of the continued COVID-19 pandemic and the National restrictions and measures that will be in effect in May to limit the spread of the virus. We believe that in this particularly difficult period of the pandemic which has significantly affected the professional, scientific and social life of all of us, our scientific communication and interaction becomes even more imperative.
The Scientific Program of the 22nd National Congress includes lectures, round tables, industry symposia and oral and poster presentations that will cover current and controversial clinical topics, as well as the latest developments in all the major fields of Nephrology (Clinical Nephrology, Chronic Kidney Disease, Acute Kidney Injury, Arterial Hypertension, Renal Replacement Therapy, Renal Transplantation). However, the original scientific program has been remodeled in order to include lectures and round tables in which there will be presentations of the latest data on COVID-19 infection, the international and Greek experience from the evolution of the pandemic, its socioeconomic impacts and the perspectives from the wide application of vaccination programs but also from the discovery of new treatments. In addition, there will be oral and poster presentations.
We believe that the lectures which will be delivered by distinguished Greek and international speakers with long-standing and widely recognized research and educational expertise and also by younger colleagues with significant clinical experience and research interests guarantee the high Scientific level of the Congress.
In hope that the remodeled scientific program will successfully meet your expectations, we invite all Nephrologists, as well as colleagues of other specialties with clinical or research interests in the fields of Nephrology to accept our invitation and honor with their global and active participation the 22nd National Congress, contributing in this way to the further advancement of the Continuing Education in Nephrology.
