20th Brazilian Congress of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery

Price: see website

Organisers: Brazilian Society of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery | Official website

My dear friends, bariatric greetings to everyone.

After coordinating the organizing committee of the Brazilian Congress of Salvador in 2006 and the Scientific Committee of our last meeting in Fortaleza, I will now have the mission to preside over the 20th Brazilian Congress of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery in Curitiba in May 2019. It will be one more great challenge, especially when we see the growing performance of our main scientific meeting. The management of Caetano Marchesini, with the support of an exceptional executive team, faced a great challenge and established a new paradigm in the management of our Congresses. We have made a lot of progress and we are taking this learning to improve even more in 2019. 
We will bring, once again, the techniques, tips and strategies to make our everyday life easier, safer procedures, and our patients happier. Our specialty that has just reached its maturity, continues to renew every year, and cannot stop one day to look forward and seek improvement and excellence.

With a lot of work and obstinacy, we look at the same goals that were achieved this year: to offer a rich scientific program, to redeem more and more the fraternal environment of integration and fraternization of the old days of society, and to maintain the financial reserves for the survival of the institution and the programs that implemented.

The team that is leading did not change, we exchanged some positions of the players, reinforcements arrived, but the spirit and the motivation are the same. Fabio Viegas and Antonio Carlos Valezi will take the scientific program forward, Caetano Marchesini will coordinate the Local Organizing Committee with the support of the president of the local chapter Renato Glasmeyer. Finally, the Executive Vice President of SBCBM, Luiz Vicente Berti and I complete the team that is committed to bringing to all of you a new opportunity to enrich the knowledge, and strengthen the bonds of friendship of this great bariatric community.

See you in May, in the Great Republic of Curitiba.
