Welcome to Odense
As Obstetricians and Gynecologists, we share the privilege of caring for Women’s Health and Wellbeing, from the cradle to the grave. The Nordic Community within our specialty is unique internationally, as we have cross-border opportunities for Clinical and Scientific cooperation in Innovation and Research.
Accordingly, it is our great honour to welcome you to the 41st NFOG Congress.
The Venue is The Odeon in the Centre of Odense, a brand new; purpose built Conference Centre, which Odense City Council commissioned the day after we won the nomination to host the Nordic Congress in October 2013. Since that day, the Local Organising and Scientific Committee, together with the Board and the Scientific Committee of the NFOG, have been working closely to prepare for the Congress.
The Congress brings together practitioners and specialists, not only from the Nordic countries, but from all over the world, and the Scientific Committee has prepared an exciting and dynamic programme to advance knowledge, build partnerships and exchange ideas.
We are grateful for, and impressed by the number and quality of the free communications submitted orally or as poster presentations. The posters will be available to view throughout the Congress.
The NFOG Congress has existed for more than 80 years, but has focussed on Global Health for the last 10 years or so. This year, the congress has increasing participation and interest from colleagues beyond the Nordic countries. In an innovative cooperation with the Municipality of Odense, who has been incredibly welcoming and helpful, we have extended and opened up the Congress to include the local community, with a number of public lectures in and around the City.
During your stay in Denmark, I hope you will take the time to experience not only the City of Odense, but also other parts of our beautiful Island of Funen.
The Nordic Congress is the preeminent meeting place for us all. Embrace this opportunity to meet old friends and make new acquaintances within the Nordic community and the rest of the world. Join the get-together on Sunday at 19:30, the Welcome and Opening Session Monday at 09:00, the Guided tours and River Cruise Monday at 19:00, the Run for Women’s Health and Rights on Tuesday at 6:30 and walk with us from The Odeon at 18:00 to the Congress Dinner on Tuesday at 18:45.
Enjoy the Congress and the City of Odense.
