Amsterdam, Netherland
It is with great pleasure that I announce that
Amsterdam, and in particular the Emma Children’s
Hospital/AMC, will organize the 5th European
Pediatric Motility Meeting.
We hope that our 5th meeting will again provide
an unique opportunity to exchange experiences,
discuss new developments and ideas, show you the
latest developments by means of live demonstrations
and more importantly strike up some new
friendships. The field of gastrointestinal motility
in children and adolescents is still developing and
we make more and more progress in understanding
these common gastrointestinal problems.
As you will see from the programme, world-renowned
specialists in our field will come to Amsterdam and
will cover all aspects of pediatric motility. In 3 days
a full scope of topics will pass and we invite you to
be part of this exciting programme.
Please be welcome in Amsterdam from 8 to 10
December 2011 and enjoy our city in wintertime.
