ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE:

This 2-day conference features clinical and basic science updates of relevance to medical personnel involved in the diagnosis and management of rheumatic diseases and their complications. Because rheumatic diseases are systemic and their complications potentially involve every system in the body, the conference is relevant to many physicians. The conference promises to be interactive with question and answer sessions to allow participants to deepen their understanding of rheumatic diseases.

Presenting faculty hail from the Caribbean and the USA.  An informative hands-on ultrasound workshop is being taught by the Scottish Rheumatology Ultrasound Group.

Hotel:

This hotel is located on the south coast of Barbados in Rockley, Christ Church. It is 7 miles from the Grantley Adams international airport and 3 miles from the capital, Bridgetown.
