Dear Colleagues,

The aim of the “Egon and Ann Diczfalusy Foundation” is to support research in reproductive health and to provide updated knowledge to Obstetricians-Gynaecologists in Central-Eastern Europe.

To foster its aims, every year the Foundation organises an Annual Meeting with a Diczfalusy Award Lecture Symposium (DAL) on Reproductive Health. This year the Diczfalusy Foundation will organise its 10th Annual Meeting, the DAL 10 between 30 November and 2 December 2016 in Budapest, Hungary. This meeting will have a special significance as we will celebrate the 10th year anniversary of the Foundation established by Professor Egon Diczfalusy.

On behalf of the Scientific Committee and the Presidium of the Foundation, It is our pleasure and privilege to invite you to participate in this event. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you in Budapest!

Yours sincerely,

Sign of György Bártfai
