Dear Colleagues,

on behalf of EUROPREV,  European Network for Prevention and Health Promotion in Family Medicine and General Practice and the Organizational Board of 1st EUROPREV Symposium on Prevention in General Practice/Family Medicine, we have the great pleasure to kindly invite you to the I EUROPEAN FORUM ON PREVENTION AND PRIMARY CARE, which will take place in Porto, April 3rd to 4th, 2017.

Forum of physicians, interested in preventive activities in GP/FM from different countries of Europe plays an important role in bringing about the recent developments in the field of family medicine.

Building on the success of previous EUROPREV network preSymposiums and workshops in WONCA Europe and WONCA World Symposiums, innovative international forum of family physicians is enabling members to learn unique approaches to best care practices, reconnect with colleagues, and establish new professional contacts among the most noted experts in the field.

The scientific and the organizing committee had chosen very challenging topic: “Quaternary prevention – the art of “primum non nocere”. The themes for the Forum are focusing on the latest developments and trends, as well as future outlook on the field of primary care.

The organizing committee is gearing up for an exciting and informative Forum program including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops and  poster presentations  for  participants from  Europe and from other parts of the world.

We invite you to join us! There will be plenty of opportunities to exchange of experiences, meeting old and new friends, colleagues, physicians, health workers and other health professionals.

We believe this FORUM will be a highly rewarding networking experience for all. Additionally, we encourage you to take this opportunity to explore the many facets of Porto, and to experience the unique Portuguese culture.

We look forward to seeing you at the I European forum on prevention and primary care in the coming April.
