News from Lodz:
Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and with the safety of our community as a top priority the Local Organising Committee for the 17th EAHIL Conference in Lodz, Poland, have decided to deliver the Conference as an online event.
The virtual EAHIL 2020 Conference will take place on 16-18 November 2020 and will replace the Conference that was going to be held by the Information and Library Center of the Medical University of Lodz in Vienna House Andel’s Lodz conference hotel. They have been carefully monitoring the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the recommendations regarding events and travel provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Polish Government and, regrettably, they feel that this is the only proper decision to be made during these difficult times.
They recognize the importance of the annual meetings for the EAHIL community – to be able to continue supporting medical professionals and researchers and continue contributing to the advance of medical and health sciences we need to continually broaden our knowledge, improve our existing skills and learn new ones. And this is exactly what EAHIL events have to offer. That is why they would like to take advantage of the technologies at hand and bring us the best of EAHIL conference in this new virtual format. Let’s Be Open to this new digital experience and Act Together despite the difficulties.
