Congress 50 Years

Dear member of the Belgian Hand Group
Dear hand surgeon, resident, therapist and other people interested in hand surgery

We are proud to announce our celebration congress of 50 years Belgian Hand group. Our Belgian Hand Group was founded in 1972 – it was a beautiful year: a.o. the first pocket scientific calculator was introduced, Don Mclean released ‘American Pie’ and ‘The Godfather’ came to theater, a liter of gas costed only 0.36 Eurocent, the first single-chip microprocessor was invented and funny detail, your current president to the BHG was brought into being. So now it is time to look back, look forward and celebrate!

The BHG is happy to invite you on September 3rd to the beautiful Museum M in Leuven, to participate in this wonderful event. For our scientific enthusiasts, please feel free to submit a presentation for our free paper session of a poster presentation, we look forward to your valued contributions!

The program is final and includes interesting speakers on topics of innovation, ethics, radioprotection and history. We will conclude by enjoying a roof top music entertained celebration if all goes well with the start of our famous Leuven fair on the background (interesting to visit) and obviously, your partners are also welcome to join us at this walking & dining reception!

We sincerely hope you will take the opportunity to join us in September and look forward to our joint effort to make this delightful opportunity a big success!

Accreditation was requested for the meeting + Ethics & Economics + Radioprotection.
