Young ESPGHAN Day 2024 – 15 May 2024, Allianz MiCo, Milan

We are delighted to invite you to join us for the second year in a row to our “Young ESPGHAN Day”, a day full of workshops and inspiring talks, all tailored and dedicated to us, Young ESPGHAN.

As a committee, we are devoted to promoting education and improving training among ESPGHAN members by addressing training inequalities across different national systems. This year we will focus on how to access ESPGHAN awards/grants and then showcase the scientific work resulting from these.

Moreover, we believe leadership positions are inevitably a milestone in everyone’s career, and learning from inspiring role models would bring you all new insights into your potential as the next generation of leaders.

We are hoping that “Young ESPGHAN Day” will provide you, our colleagues, the opportunity to find inspiration and resources to explore your career potential and expand your horizons.

See you in Milan,

Andreia Nita on behalf of the Young ESPGHAN Committee
