Anual Scientific Meeting

Annual Scientific e-Meeting 2021

The seventh BRITSpA Annual Scientific Meeting will take place on  22nd September 2021. In view of the restrictions imposed by the ongoing  COVID-19 pandemic, and the success of our first virtual meeting in 2020, the plan is to repeat this year with a virtual meeting to take place live from 13:35 to 17:00 pm (UK time). We have prepared a fantastic programme which sees the return of the very popular Abstract Competition and a virtual poster session together with key lectures and interactive Q&A sessions. New this year is the creation of the "Andrew Keat Lecture" which will be a state of the art presentation by a world known leader in SpA and which aims to recognize their significant contribution to the field. This lecture is a recognition to the achievements by our friend and BRITSpA's Inaugural Chair, Dr Andrew Keat, who will be in attendance to enjoy the first 2021 offering. The 2021 e-meeting will be chaired by Gareth Jones and Steven Zhao. CPD accreditation will be available to all delegates and speakers.
