INGID News August 2020
INGID has had a busy time and recently we have been working hard to plan and prepare our first ever virtual conference. With the valuable help and support we have received from ESID, a virtual program has been created which we believe will be engaging, interactive and a high value way to listen and learn. Our finalised program will be published soon and we are very grateful to ESID for this opportunity.
If you are looking forward to our first ever INGID 2020 Online Meeting as much as we are, please take advantage of the Early-Bird Registration Deadline.
Register at https://esidmeeting.org/ before September 8 and you will benefit from the early bird rate.
