Prof. Dr. György Bártfai - president of the Foundation

Dear Colleagues, Dear Guests,

We are happy to organize the 13th Diczfalusy Award Lecture (DAL) symposium in Prague in this Fall. It is a great pleasure to welcome you.

In 2007 Professor Egon Diczfalusy’s dream became reality by establishing a Foundation to support research in Reproductive Health and to provide updated knowledge to obstetriciansgynaecologists mainly in Central-Eastern Europe and accelerate the networking with building up research connection besides friendship.

To foster its aims, the Foundation organises a scientific symposium every year. The 13th annual meeting, the DAL 13 is jointly organized with the Czech Menopause and Andropause Society of the Czech Medical Society of J. E. Purkyně. The meeting’s venue is the historical city of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic and it takes place on 18-19 October 2019. On behalf of the Scientific Committee and the Presidium of the Foundation, It is my pleasure and privilege to invite you to participate in this event.

We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you in Prague and hope that the excellent scientific programme and the internationally outstanding speakers will give you useful scientific merit.

You will experience an unforgettable memory during this event in the friendly atmosphere of the host city and also by tasting the famous Czech beer and discovering the beauty of the capital!

The 13th consecutive meeting clearly proves that Prof. Diczfalusy’s dream has come true. I hope the successful cooperation and friendship will keep this vision alive further on.
