III International Symposium
«Bone-muscular diseases and age»
(March 12-14, 2018, Lviv, Ukraine)
Holding international symposia ‘Bone-muscular diseases and age’ in Lviv is a good tradition already as every one of them becomes a well anticipated spectacular event for the medical community. Their organization is a result of cooperation by the Ukrainian Association of Osteoporosis, Austrian Society for Bone and Mineral Research and Slovak Society for Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Diseases (SOMOK) and the support by the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases (ESCEO).
CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPEAN SUMMIT ON BONE DISEASES:
SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENTS OF 2017
Dec 7, 2017
A recent tradition shared by the scientists from the Central and Eastern Europe involved in studying bone and muscular diseases and Vitamin D status is to gather in Vienna on the eve of Christmas celebrations to discuss important initiatives of the year, share their professional experience, present independent findings on the new methods and improved diagnostics and management of bone and muscular diseases. This year the meeting took place on Dec 7. It is also a tradition that the Central and Eastern European Summit on Bone Diseases is organized by the leading Austrian scientists in the field of medicine – Prof. Gerold Holzer (Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Medical University of Wien) and Prof. Heinrich Resch (St. Vincent Hospital, Academic Teaching Hospital of the Medical University of Wien).
During the recent years, all over the country, the Ukrainian Association of Osteoporosis and the Ukrainian EVIDAS (European Vitamin D Association) Chapter have been traditionally holding the scientific-practical conferences “Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency in the clinical practice”.
