Go West recently managed the exciting Irish Osteoporosis Conference in Trinity College Dublin.  The conference saw some 180 delegates from around Ireland attend the meeting with an impressive line up of speakers.  Go West took care of all the headaches including registration, CME sign in and certificate issuing, venue management, catering management, poster board display, exhibitor management, speaker liaison and much more.  Our full range of Conference services are available here.

The Irish Osteoporosis Society Charity (IOS) was founded by Professor Moira O’Brien in 1996 as a patient support organisation for those suffering with Osteoporosis and their families. The Irish Osteoporosis Society is the only organisation in the Republic of Ireland that deals specifically with Osteoporosis.

From the outset, the IOS has been dedicated to reducing the incidence of Osteoporosis, a preventable bone disease in most cases, and promoting bone health. The IOS provides information to the public and health professionals on all aspects of the disease and offers support to people with Osteoporosis and everyone at risk from the disease. The IOS want to significantly decrease the amount of senior citizens who are losing their independence from undiagnosed Osteoporosis.

Each year a conference is held to pave the way for the future of osteoporsis care and is attended by doctors, nurses, technologists, radiologists and so on.

All areas of osteoporosis were covered at the conference including: vitamin D and the link with genetics; what GP’s can do as they are on the front line of seeing these patients; the significant link with Diabetes.

Professor Bernard Walsh was awarded the Irish Osteoporosis Society Lifetime achievement award for his outstanding work and commitment in the area of Osteoporosis.

The final conference agenda is available here.  Go West managed the conference registration, venue management, speaker liaison, poster & abstract management, catering etc.
