About the GRAPPA Annual Meeting

GRAPPA Annual Meetings are the preferred global conference to attend because of the high scientific level of clinical and research presented. There is a good dialogue between the clinicians, researchers, and steering committee. These discussions translate to incorporation in clinical management recommendations, position statements and the design of new academic studies and clinical trials. The GRAPPA membership is very friendly and the meetings are very sociable.
