IX SLIMP virtual meeting May 4-6, 2022.

Dear all,

We want to warmly invite you to our next Symposium of the Latin American Society on Maternal-Fetal Interaction and Placenta.

Even though the world is taking the road to recovery, as COVID-19 vaccination programs are rolling out, it remains our top priority and responsibility to ensure the health and safety of our staff and participants. With this in mind, we have decided to hold the Symposium as a virtual event, taking place on 4-6 May 2022.

We are grateful for your understanding and support and we hope that the scientific excellence of the program can at least partially balance out the disappointment of not being able to meet all of us together.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you all online!
