Welcome to the 27th International Congress of the OGSM
It is with great pleasure that the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia (OGSM) invites you to attend and actively participate in the 27th International Congress of the OGSM, which will be held from the 18th to 21st of July 2019 at the Setia SPICE Convention Centre, Penang. We picked the “Pearl of the Orient” as the venue to give the congress a different feel, since it has been held in Kuala Lumpur the past 3 years.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – Benjamin Franklin
For decades, clinicians and researchers focussed on prediction of diseases in the name of prevention but recent advances suggest incorporating precision in health care as the way forward. We need a more focused and targeted approach by integrating genetic and environmental factors for a more holistic personalised approach based on individual risks and needs, moving away from generic medicine. This is perhaps the next medical evolution thus our congress theme “Prediction, Prevention, Precision.”
We have prepared an exciting and high impact scientific program filled with recent and up-to-date developments that caters for everyone. The congress’s goal is to bring together, the best brains in our field from Malaysia and all over the world to present, interact and exchange ideas with all participants. It is also a great platform for participants to reflect upon and celebrate our past accomplishments, renew friendships and extend our networks both in clinical practice and research.
We look forward to meet all of you in Penang in July 2019 for a most stimulating and enjoyable event. Thank you for your participation.
