WELCOME LETTER from EMSP’s President
On behalf of EMSP’s Conference Committee, we are delighted to invite you to Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, for EMSP's Annual General Meeting (9th May 2019) and EMSP's Annual Conference (10-11 May 2019).
The theme of the 2019 EMSP Annual Conference is: Digital Health in MS Management.
Building on the success of previous EMSP conferences, the event will bring together people with MS, experts and advocates in the field, MS societies across Europe, healthcare professionals, researchers and policy decision-makers.
The two days of the conference are designed to offer you an insightful and dynamic mix of presentations, panel discussions and educational workshops. Expert speakers will bring us up-to-date with the latest research findings that directly impact the lives of people with MS and the ongoing MS initiatives at international and European level. Several networking opportunities will allow us to learn from best practices in the field of patient advocacy at scientific level.
This conference, alongside your valuable participation, represents another milestone towards our common goal to improve the quality of life of people with MS in Europe. We are here to bring knowledge, inspire and empower!
We are delighted to organise this conference in partnership with the Lithuanian Multiple Sclerosis Union and look forward to welcoming you to Vilnius for what promises to be a valuable, insightful conference with high-powered networking sessions and impactful keynote presentations.
We encourage individual patients, patient organisations, healthcare professionals, researchers, public health officials, industry and policy-makers from national, regional and European level to attend this Conference. The EMSP conferences represent a unique forum for the exchange and sharing of knowledge and experience in the field of multiple sclerosis.
We hope that you will find the conference and your stay in Vilnius both valuable and enjoyable.
With kind regards,
in name of the Conference Committee
