Scientific awards are presented to authors of the top abstracts from the World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology every year.
ISUOG President Dr Caterina Bilardo delivered this message at the Annual General Meeting at #ISUOG2018: “We need you and we need you not only as attendee of this congress but also as an author, reviewer, teacher, initiator of new ideas, as provider of images or video clips that we will use to enrich our enormous educational material. So, please get close to us and we will get close to you.”
"Through the unique travel grant program set up by ISUOG, I had the privilege of attending the 2018 conference in Singapore. Although, I have relied on the educational content published by ISUOG throughout my career, this is the first conference I have been able to attend and it far exceeded my expectations. The educational program was extremely comprehensive and provided updates regarding a vast array of topics. I currently work in Kenya and the travel grant program allowed me to learn and grow as a clinician while affording me the opportunity to develop and foster professional relationships that I would otherwise not have had.”
