Feedback from our 2016 event

"Morning session! One of the best sessions I have ever attended. Superb speakers and excellent, relevant topics, well presented. Afternoon ditto! An absolutely stunning programme, well done to all the organisers!"

"The Livingstone lecture was inspiring – to have taken a methodological approach and been so successful in actioning the outcome in Zimbabwe. The FGM lecturers were also fascinating in their content and the presentation content was refreshing in its style and approach"

"Thank you for organising such a successful day with a very comprehensive and interesting programme."

"I think that this symposium is always the most interesting of all the travel medicine events/conferences I attend."
