A MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIRS
PNM2020 will be the first ever pediatric focused meeting in Pediatric Neurogastroenterology and Motility. The meeting aims to be truly multi and interdisciplinary involving professionals, drawn from across multiple specialties, involved in the care of children suffering from gastrointestinal and nutritional conditions specifically with so-called gastrointestinal functional and motility disorders. The meeting offers an exceptional chance to present latest research in pediatric neurogastroenterology and facilitate discussion and interaction with active researchers and clinical colleagues from across the globe.
PNM2020 will be held in the City of Adelaide, located in the State of South Australia. The meeting venue will be held at SAHMRI (South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute), which is situated in the centre of the city next to the River Torrens. Adelaide is home to one of the largest health and medical research precincts in the Southern Hemisphere. Adelaide is famous for its outstanding wine, food and arts culture. The City of Adelaide is located about 15 kilometres from pristine beaches of popular summer tourist destinations, with the time of year providing the ideal climate to enjoy the meetings and the attractions that Adelaide has to offer.
On behalf of the local organizing Committee, we look forward to welcoming you in Adelaide for PNM 2020.
