EHS LILLE 2020 and Covid-19

 

As previously written at April Presidential Address of our EHS Newsletter: Covid-19, the gigantic challenge, “We are currently going through an unprecedented situation which is upsetting our habits and our lifestyles. For several months, our eyes have been focused on an invisible enemy who attacks the health of millions of people, takes the lives of too many of them, upsets our social organization, destroys the world economy and paralyzes the political life… At European Hip Society, our very first wishes address your health, your family and relatives … For each of us, whatever the place we are living, and with a particular consideration for all our colleagues and friends from Italy and Spain, which are so painfully affected, our country is counting on us to confront this epidemic. Our European Hip Society knows that despite the difficulties, despite the risks, we will be able to respond collectively and individually to the most important health challenge that our generation will have experienced.”

In such a dramatic context, we naturally have to think about our coming biannual congress in October 2020… Numerous congresses and meetings, as well as other types of sporting or political events have already being cancelled or postponed. We perfectly understand how much frustrating these cancellations can be for organizers and attendants, however all of us naturally place the safety of participants as the first priority.

Our 14th EHS congress in Lille will take place in October 2020…Hopefully we would anticipate that the dramatic sanitary crisis would be behind us at this time. Of course, further guidelines and decisions will be taken on due time in order to minimize the impact of potential issue on our Lille Congress… Anyway, and so far, nobody can really see in a crystal ball what the situation will be next fall and we do need to go forward on our track… everyone is still on the bridge to continue this project at best. We are grateful to the Industry for supporting us as they do at a very high level of confidence, and are proud of the enthusiastic support of all surgeons who have accepted to lead and participate in our symposia, and all our colleagues who have sent their abstracts to share their knowledge and hip-related experience.

The storm is currently over our heads, but hopefully better days are expected in few months… Hence, we surely can think about a Lille 2020 October congress that, at last, will allow us to find ourselves in a peaceful and friendly atmosphere, and to leave serene for all our activities…
