Event Overview
Welcome message:
We are proud to announce the 3rd World Congress on Controversies, Debates and Consensus in Bone, Muscle and Joint Diseases (BMJD) held under the auspices of the IOF and ESCEO, which will take place April 23-26, 2015 in Montreal, Canada.
 
Over the years, the fields of bone, muscle and joint diseases have undergone enormous expansion in clinical and basic data, as well as that of field-related technology. With the problem of bone, muscle and joint diseases reaching epidemiological dimensions, treatment possibilities have digressed diversely. This development has created a need for debates and discussions on the numerous controversial issues to attain clinical conclusions.
 
The 3rd edition of BMJD aims to continue facilitating effective debates on unresolved clinical and therapeutic dilemmas, supported by evidence-based medicine and expert opinions resulting in agreement on timely issues. The program provides an effective forum for discussing and debating such unresolved controversies by allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussions with world authorities in the fields of Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Pain, Muscles and Joint Diseases.
 
We are proud to announce that the 3rd BMJD Congress will be held under the auspices of the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO), making an even greater impact on the scientific community.
 
We look forward to your participation and contribution to the 3rd World Congress on Controversies, Debates and Consensus in Bone, Muscle and Joint Diseases (BMJD), and to welcoming you to the delightful city of Montreal.
 
Sincerely,
Rick Adachi , Boulos Haraoui, Santiago Palacios, Jean-Pierre Pelletier, Johanne Martel-Pelletier
