AFFIRMO at the EuGMS Congress 2022: a great networking opportunity

  • 11 October 2022

The 18th EuGMS Congress, which took place in London from the 28th to the 30th of September 2022, was an ideal meeting place for the large and international audience composed of all the experts in the field of geriatric medicine, including health professionals, geriatricians, and scientists.  

In this context of excellence, AFFIRMO was well represented throughout the whole congress: as a matter of fact, since day one, its exhibition stands in front of the auditorium provided all participants in the EuGMS community area with an introductory video and the general project information.  

Moreover, on the 29th of September, the project coordinator Søren Paaske Johnsen gave a talk in a symposium dedicated to “Team work in EU projects (with EuGMS partnership)”, where he explained the objectives, the organization, and the first interim results of the AFFIRMO project itself.  

Lastly, on the 30th of September, Lu Dai, a PostDoc from Karolinska Institutet, provided a lecture with the title “Comorbidity patterns in older adults with atrial fibrillation: a Danish nationwide cohort study”, during a highly attended oral communications session. 

In the end, with more than 1500 participants at the EuGMS Conference 2022, AFFIRMO gained a lot of international visibility, recognition, and potential followers, by establishing further cross-links to other European projects on related topics.
