Dear Friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the scientific committee of Latin American Thyroid Society, it is a great honor and pleasure to invite you to attend the XVII Latin American Congress of Thyroid.
First, and principally, scientific congress must mean science. In the last years we have testified notable advances in the management of thyroid diseases. Various concepts were scientifically tested and new therapeutic strategies were developed. Both the experimental and clinical research have provided a considerable amount of new knowledge in the thyroid field.
The scientific committee is working hard preparing an excellent Program to synthesize the new knowledge, as well as identify key elements for clinical practice and for future research.
Beyond exceptional conferences by eminent speakers, symposiums, meetings with the specialist, oral presentations, and posters, we will have a wide space for the exchange of experiences between all participants in an informal and friendly atmosphere which will facilitate the discussion after the scientific exhibitions.
We look forward to welcoming you in Buenos Aires!
Ana Luiza Maia
President, Scientific Committee
