It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the MEFS 2019 to be held in Cairo, Egypt. With 25 years of success behind us, in our conference this year we are preparing some special surprises and an elaborate scientific program. All through its history since its birth in 1994, the MEFS annual meetings have been known for its high scientific standards. It attracts thousands of attendees from the Middle East, Africa, and the World. This year we chose to hold our 26th meeting in Cairo. A vibrant, exotic and welcoming city with all its history and culture that will add to the glory of the meeting with a special scent of Egyptian hospitality. Wondering in the city alone transforms you with a memorable experience to carry back home. Our social program this year will endeavor to include an essence of the history and Egyptian culture in an atmosphere that will help us get to together and form wider networks of friendship and collaboration. We are looking forward for your participation and contribution to the scientific content of our meeting. Our conference this year will include keynote lectures, oral and poster sessions. We encourage discussions to facilitate dissemination of knowledge to improve our clinical practice for the benefit of patients in our field. You will find in our online platform and through our organizing committee the channel to register and present your scientific contribution in an easy accessible way.
We are looking forward to meet you in MEFS 2019. Welcome to Egypt, the cradle of civilization.
