Welcome Letter from the SER President
Dear members, colleagues and friends,
Ecuador is decked out for the Pan-American League of Rheumatology Associations (PANLAR) Congress, an international scientific event to be held in the city of Quito, the “Light of America”, where outstanding professionals from around the world will travel to share their knowledge and experience with all the attendees.
This is the first time that our country has opened its doors to the most important event in rheumatology on this continent: THE 21st PANLAR CONGRESS. This is the most important event in rheumatology, the essential meeting place for rheumatologists and other similar specialists.
The lecturers, exhibitors and speakers are ready, and the workshops are too; all that it is left to make this great event the success that we hope it will be is you, my colleagues and friends.
In the name of the Ecuadorian Rheumatology Society, and on my own behalf, it is an honour to extend a warm welcome to the city of Quito to the world’s medical community. This is an open invitation; all are welcome.
Dr. Carlos Rios Acosta
President of the Ecuadorian Rheumatology Society
