ERS Satellites – Severe Asthma

Introducing a new initiative

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend a one-day event on the topic of severe asthma, developed by Professors Stephen Holgate and Guy Brusselle, taking place on 12 April, 2018. The programme is part of a new initiative designed to deliver free, cutting-edge education using live-streaming technology, to share knowledge with large audiences without incurring the costs associated with travel and accommodation.

You can attend an event at one of eight venues across Europe or join us online. Each venue will be chaired by a topic expert representing ERS, and speakers will be international experts and leaders in their respective fields (see list below).

Each of the eight venues will contribute to the one-day programme by hosting one 25 minute live talk by the local chairs and speakers, and a 15 minute question and answer session. Sessions from the seven other participating cities will be streamed live into your venue throughout the day. Over an extended lunchtime period, there will be a closed session with the local faculty based on case studies and feedback from the sessions. The closed session will be conducted in the local language and will offer further discussion on the main topic and related comorbidities (not available through online registration).
