WONCA Europe conference in Berlin: 17 to 19 December 2020
The WONCA Europe conference was originally scheduled for June 2020 in Berlin but was forced to postpone. However the event has now been re-scheduled and will take place from 17th to 19th December, still in Berlin. This is likely to be the only WONCA event in the whole of 2020 so we hope that as many as possible will come along to meet old friends and make new ones. Further details can be found here
