Letter from the IFFAS President - November 2021

Dear friends:

Final updates are being made to refresh the program for our 2022 meeting in Chile (April 28-30).

We have seen an enormous enthusiasm to participate from speaker, paper presenters, attendees and industry.

We are all expecting an amazing face to face scientific event with big opportunities to improve social interaction and friendship.

Chile has most of the population with full vaccination program (3 dosis). So it has been declared a safe country to travel with minor restrictions.

At the same time Chile has been awarded as the best outdoor destination of the world for all of you to enjoy.

Please be aware of the updated information in our webpage and social media.

There is information about social program, registration, housing, tourism, updated local covid situation, etc.

Please do not hesitate to contact me directly in case of any doubts, +56994344038

We are counting in every single member of our Federation!
