21st World Congress of Asthma

  • Conference Call
  • You are invited to take part to the World Congress of Asthma, which will be held in one of the world's great cities, Québec, Canada, in August 18-21, 2012.

    The members of the Organizing Committee have put together a superb educational and networking meeting that should be one of the highlights of 2012 in the field of respiratory medicine. All clinicians and researchers, as well as allied health professionals interested in asthma are invited to attend this event. World class speakers will offer an update on the epidemiology, physiopathology, clinical management and various other aspects of care of children and adults with asthma.

    You should take this opportunity to visit our most beautiful European-like region. Québec City is renowned for its hospitality, gastronomy, near-by nature and various attractions that will make this journey a most memorable one. The old part of the town is on UNESCO's world heritage sites list and the European ambiance in a North American setting and a bilingual French and English environment that will appeal to visitors from all continents. In a recent survey of 28,000 readers of the magazine Condé Nest Travaeler, Québec City has been declared the best destination in Canada, the third best in North-America and the 6th best in the world.
