Due to the circumstance related to COVID-19, the Annual SLEP / SMEP 2020 Congress will be held only as a virtual meeting.

 

Dear SLEP and SMEP members:

This year our region, as well as the entire world, has been faced with unprecedented challenges in recent decades due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that you and your loved ones are well.

As you can imagine, with the experience of other societies and their congresses, SLEP and SMEP have spent time thinking about how to hold the 2020 Congress planned to take place in Mérida, December 2-5 . Together with the local organizing committee and the Organizing Committees of Congress and Finance of SLEP, we have analysed the situation, consulting our members and regular attendees to our congress, health authorities and our sponsors.

Finally, the unanimous decision has been that the SLEP/SMEP 2020 Congress be held exclusively as a virtual meeting, without face-to-face activity, during December 2020.

The Organising Committees and the Finance Commission are working to make the details of the new program, registrations and sponsorships, as well as the technical characteristics required for online connection, available to all interested parties on August 31, 2020.

We regret that we cannot meet in person for our annual congress this year in Merida and we hope to see you again soon.

 

Rodolfo Rey, SLEP President

Sobre a SLEP

A Sociedade Latino-Americana de Endocrinologia Pediátrica – SLEP – foi fundada em 1986 por um grupo de endocrinologistas, sob a liderança do Dr. César Bergadá, a maioria dos quais já pertencia à SLAIP (Sociedade Latino-Americana de Investigação Pediátrica).A SLEP tem com objetivo a integração dos endocrinologistas pediatras e estimular o desenvolvimento da endocrinologia pediátrica na América Latina no sentido mais amplo.

A SLEP tem como atividade principal o congresso anual, com conferências e apresentações de protocolos colaborativos. No congresso da SLEP, a discussão dos trabalhos apresentados, quer como pôster, quer como tema livre, tem destaque especial na programação, além da presença sempre enriquecedora dos convidados estrangeiros. Nestas reuniões são apresentados inúmeros projetos pioneiros, inovadores, de excelente teor científico, modificando a pediatria latino-americana.
