Invitation to the South Eastern Europe Cystic Fibrosis Conference

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the South Eastern Europe Cystic Fibrosis Conference, which will take place in Dubrovnik, one of the most beautiful cities on the Croatian coast.

In the past, Dubrovnik was a City-Republic (Dubrovnik Statute from 1272), and alongside Venice, has been one of the most famous cultural-economic centres on the Mediterranean. Since 1979, Dubrovnik has been registered with UNESCO under a protected World Heritage status. In more recent times, it has become a centre of modern cultural and touristic events. Dubrovnik is a place that offers not only a rich selection of various experiences teeming with excitement, but also a complete holiday in a quiet and calming, mild Mediterranean ambient, with wonderful seaside landscapes.

This is the second conference for cystic fibrosis which takes place in South Eastern Europe. The first conference was held last year in Macedonia, and it has become clear that further education about cystic fibrosis in South Eastern Europe is necessary. According to the needs for education this year we provide three high quality seminars: medical seminar, seminar for allied health professionals and a lay seminar for families and patient representatives.

We encourage you to come to Dubrovnik and contribute to a better tomorrow for all the people with cystic fibrosis in South Eastern Europe.

Once you are in Dubrovnik, you will find a high quality conference venue by the sea, and nearby excellent hotels. As an alternative you may lodge at one of the many hotels in the old city or by the sea.

The Croatian Cystic Fibrosis Association and Cystic Fibrosis Europe are very grateful to our sponsors .
