The XIth IEA-EMR Regional Scientific Meeting took place in Beirut, Lebanon, 21-23 February 2019, in association with the Lebanese Epidemiological Association. Recent political changes in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) have made recent meetings difficult, but despite these unfavorable conditions, a number of epidemiologist practitioners gathered for the program.
The meeting offered attendees a full schedule of workshops, poster presentations and break-out sessions. Each of the eleven break-outs sessions focused on one particular topic with up to seven specific presentations on that topic. A full brogram can be seen below.
Many thanks to the organizing committee co-chaired by Salim Adib, IEA-EMR Regional Councilor, and Mary Deeb, LEA. Other organizing committee members included Ibrahim Bou-Orm, Rachel Btaiche, Rasha Hamra, Ghinwa El Hayek, Aziza Khalidi and John Fayyed (in memorium).
