Dear EuSSAB member, 

Since our last EuSSAB newsletter in January, COVID-19 has changed how we live, how we travel, and how we do business. It has also had a tremendous impact on EUROSPINE, forcing us to cancel or postpone all in-person activities and meetings for 2020.

Over the past six months, EUROSPINE has risen to the challenge of finding creative new ways to bring value to our membership, to MedTechs and to other stakeholders. Our team has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that our members continue to benefit from our educational offerings, registry activities, patient services and meeting/networking opportunities. We’re proud to introduce our two newest offerings that will enable you and your colleagues to exchange ideas, build knowledge, and advance your skills – all without the need for travel:

NEW! EuSSAB WEBINAR (16 September 2020)

All national EuSSAB representatives are invited to take part in the first-ever EuSSAB webinar on 16 September (17:00-19:00 CEST). This webinar replaces the EuSSAB Spring Meeting 2020, which unfortunately had to be cancelled. You will receive a summary of the topics discussed during this meeting afterwards.


VIRTUAL EUROSPINE 2020 (6–9 October 2020) 

EUROSPINE’s premier Annual Meeting is going online this year, and will offer the same, top-quality scientific programme, educational seminars, debates, industry workshops and exhibitions you have come to expect from our previous meetings. Virtual EUROSPINE 2020 (6–9 October) is a full, CME-accredited online congress. The programme will feature time-zone sensitive session slots, so you can take part wherever you are in the world or even participate without closing your practice. No travel is required.

 All associate members are eligible for the EuSSAB 20% discount, saving you €119 on your registration. Be sure to key in the EuSSAB gift code “eussab2020!”, when registering for the meeting.
