GlobalSurg enjoys success at top global surgery conferences

GlobalSurg had a strong presence at the Royal College of Surgeons in London where the recent Global Anaesthetic, Surgery & Obstetric Collaboration (GASOC) and Global Surgical Frontiers conferences were held in April. Analysis of GlobalSurg 1 was awarded best presentation at GASOC, and GlobalSurg had a busy stand at the Global Surgical Frontiers conference launching the new GlobalSurg randomised controlled trial. It was also a great opportunity to spread the word about the work of GlobalSurg to leaders in the field and potential future collaborators!

You can read more about the conferences on our blog
