Conferences are important in almost all aspects of FESCA’s work. It is a lonely business, having a disease that nobody has heard of, but conferences gives us the opportunity to meet other scleroderma sufferers, to spread awareness of the disease – also in the medical and pharmaceutical industry – and to exchange knowledge and information. For FESCA, conferences also play a big role in terms of encouraging the active involvement of politicians and pharmaceutical companies.
The congress was an opportunity for doctors, healthcare professionals and patients to gather, share and present new medical findings, research and results.
The sessions in the auditorium were recorded, and we are happy to share those with you.
