We encourage you all to consider joining us in Japan as the powder snow and cultural experience make it a “MUST DO”. For those attending, the success is also dependent on members offering to present at both Niseko and Kiroro, so please be involved. The option to Present at the Sessions is provided when registering and should your Presentation be accepted into the programme, a refund of $250AUD on your registration is provided following the Conference. You may offer to do more than one Presentation but the refund will remain limited to $250AUD in total. Participation is much appreciated as our previous programmes have been both enlightening and “world class”, often covering the full medical spectrum. The Programme is not available until all places are filled and Presenter Bios and Abstracts received.
Note: There is a $500AUD prize offered by Wealth Tree Solutions* representative Jeff Bowman who has generously offered to fund this prize and provide information by way of a presentation.
