We are delighted to invite you to the Turning Science Into Caring Symposium: Elevating the Standard of Care, that will be held on 13 – 14 July, 2018 at the Renaissance Caohejing Hotel, Shanghai, China.

This symposium will be held in partnership with the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC), and the Asia-Pacific Federation for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine (APFCB).

Today, change is the only constant and healthcare in our region continues to evolve bringing a host of challenges and opportunities. Now, more than ever, there is a need to transform and to demonstrate the value of the laboratory in elevating the standard of care and in improving healthcare performance. Advancing patient care through laboratory excellence is more than an ideal, it can be now achieved with tangible solutions and demonstrated with measurable outcomes.

In this context, you can look forward to inspiring and dynamic keynote sessions, specially curated workshops, peer to peer networking and an experiential showcase – all targeted to provide you valuable insights to get your laboratory to become future ready – now!

Some of the international speakers who have accepted to present include: Prof. Dr. med. Stefan Blankenberg, Prof. Howard Morris, Dr. Hendrik Van Deventer, Dr. Thomas Clancy, Dr. Jen-Fong Shen, Dr. Sukesh C Nair, A/Prof. Sunil Kumar Sethi, Dr. Navapun Charuruks, and Mr. Sten Westgard. They will help you to learn more about new solutions in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, Liver Cancer Diagnosis, Quality improvement, and linkage to clinical excellence and more.

Please mark your calendar and we look forward to seeing you!
