 WELCOME MESSAGE


On behalf of the International Association of Surgeons Gastroenterologists and Oncologists (IASGO), we are delighted to invite you to join us at the 3rd Annual Meeting of IASGO Egyptian Chapter in conjunction with the 12th Annual Meeting of Egyptian Society of Surgeons and the Egyptian Group of Hepatopancreatobiliary Surgery, which will take place on November 14th-15th, 2019 in Cairo, Egypt.


IASGO was founded in Amsterdam in 1988 as a unique multidisciplinary society with the aim of the globalization of medical knowledge. Surgeons, gastroenterologists, and oncologists are encouraged to join forces worldwide in order to realize the mission of IASGO. We believe that up-to-date medical practice and expertise are needed in all communities worldwide, and that they have to be available beyond any kind of discrimination to every patient suffering from challenging and life-threatening diseases. IASGO’s leadership strives to implement this vision through a well-structured educational program with a global reach, which is teaching and promoting multi-disciplinary, collaborative approaches for the treatment of intractable diseases.


We commend the remarkable efforts of Professor Mohamed Abdel Wahab, the President of the IASGO Egyptian Chapter, and the Local Organizing Committee of the Egyptian Society of Surgeons and the Egyptian Group of Hepatopancreatobiliary Surgery over the last three years. Working together, they have developed an outstanding multidisciplinary scientific program for third year in a row since the foundation of the Egyptian Chapter of the IASGO in 2016. On this special occasion of the Third Annual Meeting of IASGO Egyptian Chapter, they joined forces with IASGO leadership and created one of the highest-level programs that includes international experts from Asia, Europe and USA as well as promising young fellows from the region. This will lead to networking and cross-fertilization among experts at various stages of their careers and diverse interests to promote further collaborative projects at an international level. Friendships are a key to carry out the mission of IASGO, which is Globalization of Medical Knowledge. This Annual Meeting of IASGO Egyptian Chapter is a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new friends.
