Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose: Healthcare practitioners are currently faced with the challenges of both treating and preventing the increasing incidence of chronic illness with a focus on obesity-related diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Educating populations on the impact of diet and lifestyle on chronic disease and overall health has become a key area in addressing these global public health concerns. The Mediterranean is known for the general good health of its population, in part due to embracing traditional healthy lifestyles and cuisine that provides health benefits derived from following a Mediterranean diet model. However, like many developed countries, they are challenged with implementing new healthcare reforms within the context of increasing budgetary restrictions and the healthcare demands of a growing aging population if they wish to maintain current healthcare standards. Now, more than ever, it is important for healthcare professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. By design, this program offers opportunities for professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting. Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include: • Healthcare Systems Overview • Dental Healthcare Updates: Delivery & Treatment • Evaluating the Impact of Diet and Lifestyle on Disease • Top Medical Issues: Confronting Healthcare Needs • Medical/Dental Focus on Preventative Care • Updates in Travel Medicine & Medicine at Sea Cruise Itinerary Highlights: • See the spectacular coastal rock formations near Portimão, or travel to the ancient city and castle of Silves, once the Arab capital of the Algarve • One of Europe’s oldest settlements, Cádiz features medieval streets and whitewashed plazas; visit nearby Seville for its well-preserved Old Town • Explore Picasso’s hometown of Málaga and its ancient Moorish fortress, or opt for wine tasting in the whitewashed hilltop village of Mijas • British Gibraltar features views of Africa, military history, and wild apes • Taste authentic tapas in Almería, or travel to Granada for its 14th- century Moorish palace, Alhambra—a UNESCO World Heritage Site • Visit Palma de Mallorca, an island city known for its gothic cathedral, Mediterranean beaches, and nearby beautiful 14th-century villages Your Windstar Voyage Includes: • Open-seating dining featuring fresh locally sourced ingredients, specialty dining under the stars, and 24-hour room service, plus 2 brand new specialty restaurants including Spanish tapas and an alfresco grill • All non-alcoholic beverages, including soft drinks, juices, specialty coffee, tea, bottled water, and other specialty non-alcoholic drinks • Optional “All-In Package” for all-inclusive gratuities, laundry service, Wi-Fi & beverages including wine, beer, premium spirits, mini-bar items • Newly redesigned leisure areas with a relaxed and casual ambiance, full-service spa, fitness center, library, outside Star Bar, hot tub, and infinity pool, plus onboard entertainment including local performances • $200 shipboard credit per person when you book before March 30, 2020 Get to Know PES!

3rd Chromosomal Instability as a Driver of Human Disease Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held from Oct 05 - 08, 2020 at Dolce CampoReal Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal. Target Audience: This meeting will appeal to Molecular/Cell Biologists/Geneticists & Biochemists interested in genome stability. Researchers interested in the molecular basis of cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and ageing and those with an interest in high throughput genetic and pharmacological screening methods will also find the conference highly relevant along with those wishing to exploit genome maintenance abnormalities in tumour cells for therapeutic benefit. Synopsis: This conference is a continuation of the DNA Replication as a Source of DNA Damage series. The maintenance of genome integrity is critical for the suppression of several pathological disorders in humans, including cancer, infertility and neurodegeneration. Moreover, the accumulation of unrepaired errors in DNA is commonly cited as a likely cause of tissue and organismal ageing. Destabilization of the genome can occur as a result of several cell intrinsic or extrinsic factors, including errors arising during DNA replication or chromosome segregation, as well as exposure of cells to agents that induce DNA damage. In this conference, we aim to bring together scientists studying DNA replication, DNA repair and chromosome segregation with those interested in how chromosomal instability can influence human pathology. Moreover, we aim to show how high throughput and high content screening methods can be used as a discovery tool both for basic science applications and to identify potential therapeutic modalities. Course Sessions: • Pathways for repair of DNA damage and disrupted DNA replication forks • Screening tools for analysis of genome maintenance pathways and for development of new therapeutics • Chromosome fragility caused by difficult-to-replicate loci – sources and roles of DNA repair proteins • Chromosome instability as a driver of tumorigenesis, neurodegeneration and ageing • Exploitation of defects in chromosome maintenance in cancer treatment Educational Need: Chromosome instability is involved in several human diseases and is a feature of natural ageing. This conference will bridge fundamental studies on the mechanisms by which cells maintain genome stability with applications of these studies aimed at the development of new therapies. Hence, the conference will bridge basic biology and clinical applications in this rapidly advancing field. Attendees should be able to obtain a full picture of the current status of the field, as well as to interact with prominent research leaders driving the clinical application of the latest research. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

ESGAR/EPC Pancreatic Workshop is organized by European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR), European Pancreatic Club (EPC) and will be held from Oct 15 - 16, 2020 at Champalimaud Foundation, Lisbon, Lisboa, Portugal. Workshop Description: As educational activities addressing the imaging spectrum of pancreatic diseases are still scarce, especially when it comes to looking at it from a multidisciplinary point of view, ESGAR (European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology) and EPC (European Pancreatic Club) have joined forces in organising this workshop. For imaging to act as a basis for clinical decision-making a variety of issues needs to be understood not only by radiologists, but also by gastroenterologists, surgeons, pathologists and other specialists. To enable effective, patient focused and collaborative decision-making within a clinical environment, radiologists need to be aware of the relevant questions to be answered in a multidisciplinary environment. Thus, the aim of this course is to enhance the mutual understanding of important issues in the clinical management of patients with pancreatic diseases in order to improve patient-related outcomes. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
