2021 INAUGURAL BONE ‘DAY’

It is with regret that we have to announce that after 2 deferrals, and ongoing uncertainty about borders and travel, we have taken the decision to indefinitely postpone the APEG bone day which was scheduled for Saturday March 27th.

We are proposing a shorter program on zoom for Friday 12th March, from 2-5pm AEDT with some case discussions and also research planning. We hope that you will be able to join us then – further information to follow.

The day is open to clinicians of all levels and craft groups, and basic/clinical researchers interested in Paediatric Bone Health.

For further information, please .
