IOF Latin America’s Meet-the-Expert online sessions resume in 2020

On April 28, 2020, IOF Latin America will host the first 2020 session of its popular free virtual seminars in Spanish and Portuguese, led by leading experts in the region.

Due to the success of last year’s Meet The Expert online sessions, IOF Latin America, in cooperation with leading experts from IOF member societies across the region, will resume the ‘Meet the Expert’ series of informative educational webinars. The webinars will be held monthly in Spanish and Portuguese, allowing for interactive discussion.

  • From April to July, the sessions will focus on women's bone health. These will be of special interest to gynecologists, geriatricians, internists and all clinicians who are eager to learn more about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis in women.
  • From August to November the focus will be on osteoporosis and comorbidities. These sessions will be of particular interest to health professionals from varied non-bone related fields (for e.g. general practitioners, cardiologists, oncologists, HIV or kidney disease specialists, nutritionists etc.). The sessions will discuss key clinical considerations and strategies to help manage bone health and prevent osteoporosis and fractures in people who are at risk of bone loss and fragility fractures due to various disorders or medications.

The sessions will be offered in Spanish and Portuguese, on the last Tuesday and Thursday of each month respectively.
