- EURO-KiDs 2020, 6-8 July 2020 CIU, Paris, France
- All physicians, health professionals and patients are welcome for the first Kawasaki European congress, that will be held from 6 to 8 July 2020, in Paris, France.
Kawasaki disease affects 5-15/100,000 children under 5 years every year in European countries and continues to affect the heart in up to 40% of them with irreversible damage in up to 5%. Even if Kawasaki disease remains a difficult disease to understand, recognize and treat, these last years have provided fascinating new data, which could help to improve its management and outcome.
EURO-KiDs 2020 will be a rare opportunity of networking for general paediatricians, paediatric rheumatologists, infectious diseases specialists, immunologists, and paediatric cardiologists. Young students and trainees will also be welcomed.
The scientific program, that includes great speakers and recognized KD specialists throughout Europe and outside, will be organized in two complementary parts:
1) Half-day Workshop: ‘Innate immunity in the pathophysiology of autoinflammatory diseases. Unmet needs, biomarkers’ aimed to gather experiences on new treatment targets, biomarkers, data repositories, outcome measures, integrated research strategies, and e-health, in the field of multifactorial disorders of the innate immunity.
2) Two-day main congress: will be aimed to update on clinical innovations, recommendations, basic science, and will give the opportunity to share clinical experiences. The mains topics will include: epidemiology, genetics, pathogenesis, diagnosis, risk factors, management, cardiac complications, and outcome. Sessions will also be dedicated to interactive presentation of difficult cases and best oral communications.
Posters tours will be another great opportunity to provide lively interactions between presenters and participants, and we hope you will enjoy it.
The First EURO-KiDs congress is endorsed by the Société Française de Pédiatrie, the Société francophone des rhumatismes et maladies inflammatoires pédiatriques: SOFREMIP, the Pediatric Rheumatology European Society (PReS), and others.
