Read the latest letter from ISUOG CEO, Johan Vos, about the ISUOG World Congress Scientiifc Program, upcoming education courses on Neurosonography and Hypertension in pregnancy, plus the next webinar in the free ISUOG series.

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to bring you more information on our Scientific Program for our 2021 Virtual World Congress taking place 15-17 October, which can now be viewed on our website. Our Program for 2021 includes new session topics and speakers, masterclasses and some great plenaries. Don’t miss out on our Early Bird Rates which closes very soon on 16 August.  This year we offer very low rates for those coming from low resource countries to make our Congress even more accessible.  This is in line with ISUOG’s charitable mission to improve women's health around the world and making sure that during the pandemic years, our Congress remains accessible to all.

Being a member of ISUOG also offers opportunities to become involved in our work.  There are a number of member vacancies available on our Committee and Task Forces. As an open and inclusive Society, the Board of Trustees wants to encourage greater Member involvement whilst ensuring representation reflects the rich diversity of our international community. Applications close on Friday 13 August at 5.00 BST (UK)

We also offer many opportunities to advance your knowledge through a range of educational programs.  The success of our free ISUOG webinar series continues in August with Prof. Liona Poon leading on Predicting and Preventing Complications in Pregnancy. On 21st August, we bring you the Fetal Neurosonography education course run by Prof. Dario Paladini.  On 18 September, we bring our education course in Hypertension in Pregnancy: Screening, Prevention, and Monitoring led by Prof. Liona Poon and Prof. Fabrício da Silva Costa. 
For some countries, the COVID-19 Delta variant seems to be causing yet another wave. Our range of COVID-19 resources available in different languages are located here

Our August issue of the White Journal is now available and includes newly updated ISUOG Practice Guidelines on the use of Doppler Velocimetry in Obstetrics.  It’s another great read, not to be missed!    

Our President Prof. Tom Bourne is having a well-deserved holiday this month, but will be back in September.  Whatever you are doing, keep safe and stay well. 

Johan Vos
