I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2018 ANZMOSS Annual Scientific Meeting from my position as the Convener and on behalf of the Organising Committee. This will be held in Melbourne, the world's most liveable city.
The Organising Group, comprising Paul Burton (Surgery/Scientific Lead), Tony Brancatisano (Medicine), Nazy Zarshenas (Dietetics/Nutrition), Narelle Story (Nursing) and Kylie Murphy (Psychology), are busy preparing a programme of talks and workshops which will be the envy of any international bariatric audience. We have secured the services of Professor Jacques Himpens, President of IFSO whose presence we consider a real drawcard. And, we are in the process of inviting further illustrious speakers drawing on the international and regional scientific talent pool.
The venue for the Meeting is the Pullman Albert Park which sets a new high standard for Australasian conference venues, and have also secured rooms for delegates to stay onsite. We are confident that ANZMOSS 2018 will be seen as a premier event for 2018.
