Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

We hereby inform you that the 22nd Annual Congress of the Turkish Thoracic Society (TTS) with the international participation will be held on 10 – 14 April 2019 at the Titanic Deluxe Hotel, Belek, Antalya. At the congress in 2019, not only will we share our knowledge about education, research, preventive medicine and development of patient care service in pulmonary health, but we will also discuss our problems about our professional respectability and personal rights, that is why we kindly ask you to take part in this well-designed platform socially.

With the aim of emphasizing that life begins with the breath and the quality of life depends on mainly “air-breathing quality”, the motto for our congress is “Healthy Breath, Healthy World”.

The scientific program is constituted by collective struggle, feedbacks and our members’ offers such as residents’ representatives, specialists’ representatives, province’s representatives, branch executive committees, scientific assemblies and school administration committees.

We aim to move this struggle to the international dimension by foreign scientists and to maximize the pulmonary health care issues in Turkey. The scientific program includes courses, panel discussions, pro and con sessions, conferences. Additionally, several sessions entitled such as “Thorax in grand round”, “What to do with this patient?”, “Controversial Topics”, “Featured articles in the last one year”, “How are the recent developments in Pulmonary Medicine to effect the future?” are particularly designed to improve daily practices and real-life experiences.

At the sessions, participants will be updated about pulmonary diseases in a wide range of preventive medicine from diagnosis to treatments with the opportunity of finding out the solutions given by experienced scientists in this field. So, we are willing to pursue our mission to be at service in favour of public health, discussing the universal components of health care including social and environmental determinants in details.

Besides our scientific meetings, we could make good friends and reinforce our friendships with each other in the field of pulmonary disease in social atmosphere.

We do believe that the congress will provide a satisfactory venue both scientifically and socially with our ‘motto’ of “Healthy Breath, Healthy World”. Wishing to meet you all on the 22nd TTS Annual Congress with the international participation in 2019.

Sincerely yours

MEHMET POLATLI
