The Respiratory Medicine Department of the University of Ioannina in cooperation with the Association of Pulmonologists of Greece invite you to the What is New in Respiratory Medicine Hybrid Congress in Ioannina, Greece.

At a critical moment when we are starting to be more optimistic for the fate of the pandemic as vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 is being rolled out, #WiNRespMed is planning to deliver an exceptional hybrid educational experience in 2021.

The Covid-19 pandemic is likely to impact educational activities in 2021 and many of our guest speakers from different parts of Greece and abroad may face difficulties reaching Ioannina for an onsite presentation and, therefore, we have already included the opportunity for online participation for all faculty members.

We are aiming to cover all the latest evolution in most fields of modern Respiratory Medicine and host dedicated COVID-19 sessions. We will additionally focus on digital tools, personalized medicine, clinical practice guidelines and development of practical skills.

In order to achieve these aims, we are planning a 4-day program with State-of-the-Art Plenary Sessions, Keynote Lectures, focused Sponsored Sessions, Pre-Congress Clinical Workshops and practical hands-on sessions, to the extent that the course of the pandemic will allow us. Continuing the legacy of #WiNRespMed2020, we are planning to engage with world-leading experts in various fields of Respiratory Medicine.

We are optimistic that the digital and onsite format that we are designing will provide opportunities for networking, interaction with industry partners and lively discussions, either face-to-face (or even "mask-to-mask") or in online forums.

We look forward to welcoming you in the #WiNRespMed2021 Hybrid Congress on September 16-19, 2021, in Ioannina, Greece.
