Welcome Letter From ALLSA

Dear Colleagues and Friends

An African proverb says: ‘Wisdom is like a baobab tree; no one individual can embrace it.’ This is why we need you at the ‘Challenging Beliefs’ congress.

It is easy to fall into practices of deviance. Our congress will explore current best practice and aim to challenge our beliefs in allergy, pulmonology, paediatric pulmonology, primary immune deficiency and chest surgery.

It has been seven years since the previous joint ALLSA and SATS congress. The international CWIG will join us. This joint meeting will offer delegates more than an extensive program to pick and choose from. Pretoria saw staggering development in the Menlyn and Lynwood precincts in recent years. The CSIR and Menlyn Maine areas come with state of the art conferencing facilities, a wide variety of accommodation options and exciting opportunity to explore and renew friendships.

We look forward to hosting you to four days of belief changing science in the bustling new hub of Pretoria. You are invited!

Kind regards
André van Niekerk
ALLSA Convener
