61st IVSA Symposium South-Africa

61st IVSA Symposium SOUTH AFRICA

Five members of the committee were lucky enough to get the opportunity to participate in the symposium in South Africa this January. As the organizing committee of the next IVSA event it was the perfect opportunity to combine exploring a new country with gaining valuable experience and insights from the SA OC and other delegates for our congress. South Africa was a magical experience! We’ve discovered the traditional amazing aspects of it; the sun, the wildlife and the braais, and the new aspects; very interesting lectures, wetlabs and community works. We were truly impressed with Onderstepoort and the facilities that they have. We made new friends, reconnected with old ones and had a blast with everyone. We want to sincerely thank the organizing committee of the 61 st IVSA Symposium, who did a wonderful job at putting together a great program and giving us this unique experience.
