SITEMSH and SCME Congress postponed

The 37th Congress of the International Society for Snowsports Medicine (SITEMSH) and the 9th Congress of the Catalan Society for Sports Medicine (SCME) have been postponed, in conformity with the recommendations of the Andorran Ministry of Health and following the healthcare instructions of the international Medical Associations that forbid medical professionals from participating in congresses and demonstrations.

The Congress of the SITEMSH and of the SCME was going to be held from April 1 to April 4 in Andorra and has been postponed due to the threat of coronavirus, in order to prevent the expansion of the virus, even though its impact on Andorra has been very low.

The new dates for the Congress, which is previewed to be held in autumn, will be published shortly.

The organizers will continue working in order to ensure that the convening of the congress on the new dates meets the expectations of all the exhibitors, speakers and participants.

 

Congrés SITEMSH i SCME posposats

El Congrés de la SITEMSH i de la Societat Catalana de Medicina de l’Esport (SCME), han estat posposats, d’acord amb les recomanacions del Ministeri de Salut andorrà i seguint les instruccions sanitàries dels Col·legis de Metges internacionals que prohibeixen la participació dels professionals mèdics en congressos i manifestacions.

El Congrés de la SITEMSH i de la SCME s’havien de celebrar de l’1 al 4 d’abril a Andorra i s’ha posposat a causa de la crisi del COVID-19, amb la voluntat de prevenir l’expansió del virus i minimitzar l’exposició dels professionals de la salut malgrat que, hores d’ara, a Andorra només s’ha confirmat un cas, d’un viatger procedent d’una zona afectada.

Les noves dates del congrés es comunicaran properament.

Des de l’organització es continuarà treballant per tal que la celebració del Congrés en les noves dates respongui a les expectatives de tots els expositors, ponents i participants.
