This is a great opportunity for BOMSS to make an impression on the world stage of bariatrics. We are a Society that promotes high quality in bariatric surgery thanks to the work on constitutional issues, practice standards and data collection by our past and current president.
We are looking for a number of volunteers to assist with the running of the Congress and TFI Group (Congress Organiser), together with Cynthia-Michelle Borg, Scientific Co-Chair, would like to offer the opportunity to students to volunteer and make the most of this unique experience.
