We have great pleasure in inviting you to the upcoming 4th National Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Congress with International Participation to be held in Antalya between 18-21 November 2021. All of our lives have changed the cause of the Covid-19 pandemic, which emerged in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and spread to the whole world at an unprecedented speed. The world has entered a new format of life, work, education, and congress. Although we miss the old, warm, scientific, and social-oriented congresses, it seems that the return to normal will not be very fast in the near future. Organizing hybrid congresses has become a necessity for us as well as all over the world. For this reason, we will hold our congress in the hybrid form (convention center and online at the same time) under these challenging conditions.
Obesity disease was a serious pandemic in the world before the Covid-19 pandemic. It was seen once again with the corona epidemic that; Individuals with obesity and related diseases constitute the group with the highest loss due to other pandemics. In this process, the necessity of fighting obesity and obesity-related diseases in the light of science has emerged once again.
In our congress, significant names in the field at the international and national levels will be with us. They will try to clarify all the controversial points in the area in an interactive format, real-time and live.
We invite all our stakeholders interested in the treatment of obesity and obesity-related diseases to our congress to refresh our knowledge, share, gain new information, and contribute to obesity scientifically. Your participation and presence will strengthen our congress.
With our deepest respect and regards,
Prof. Aziz SÜMER, MD.
