Welcome message from the President of the 2020 PANLAR Congress
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is my great pleasure and joy to invite the medical community dedicated to rheumatology and related specialties to the 22nd Pan-American Congress of Rheumatology to be held from August 12 to 15, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Miami, USA.
After many years, our PANLAR Congress returns to the United States, which will be a great opportunity and alternative to add the North American rheumatology community to the scientific and collaborative exchange between the entire American continent. We appreciate the strong endorsement received from the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), which has closely worked with PANLAR to ensure the success of PANLAR 2020.
Indeed, we are celebrating our second annual PANLAR Congress, which step by step is becoming a fixture on the Pan-American community’s agenda, as an annual international event of high profile and excellent scientific content. The academic agenda is quite diverse and includes symposia, study groups and high-quality courses addressing important topics and trends. In this regard, the event will have a space dedicated to the promotion of a wide range of works in the form of oral presentations and posters.
A high number of prestigious speakers will join us and share their expertise with around 3000 participants from all over the world.
Generating educational meetings, promoting fraternal links between rheumatologists from different countries, sponsoring meeting places for different study groups and facilitating our own scientific communication, are some of our main purposes in pursuit of an ethical, comprehensive, highly scientific and humane rheumatology.
We look forward to seeing you in Miami, which more than a city is a multi-cultural paradise of urban centers, charming towns and neighborhoods by the sea.
Let’s make this new challenge for PANLAR one that will be remembered forever.
Luis Rolán Espinoza
PANLAR 2020 Congress President
