After a huge success for the 16th edition of the WCO-IOF-ESCEO Congress:

  • 3817 delegates took part in the largest event in the field of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, frailty and sarcopenia.
  • The Scientific Advisory Committee, co-chaired by Professor René Rizzoli and Professor Cyrus Cooper, had an extremely difficult task, to select oral presentations, among 1259 submitted abstracts of the highest quality.
  • 598 Awards were distributed during the congress.

The world's leading clinical conference on bone, joint and muscle health will take place in Florence, Italy.
