The 15th international Conference of the Society on Cachexia, Sarcopenia & Muscle Wasting, will take place on the 24-26 June 2022 in Lisbon under the guidance of Chairs of the SCWD, Prof. Stefan Anker (Berlin, Germany), and Prof. John Morley (Saint Louis, USA).
After the challenging COVID-19 crisis all over the world, education must remain a priority. The latest scientific information still needs to be shared with the medical community globally, as health outcomes of millions of patients depend upon the implementation of best care approaches and evidence-based management strategies. One of the major public health problems that need attention regarding education and information is muscle wasting. Cachexia and sarcopenia represent an ever-increasing burden for health-care systems, patients and healthcare professionals.
Our program in 2022 will take place over 3 days, thus making access possible for all participants over the world. Sessions will include short presentations and panel discussions. In addition to the academic sessions and abstract sessions, industry sessions will offer the opportunity to share the latest up-to-date research and to discuss and debate best strategies to meet patient needs.
