We are delighted to announce the upcoming Springer Healthcare IME virtual meeting, entitled Insights into MAnaging Growth for Endocrine Nurses (IMAGE). This will be the 7th IMAGE conference which will focus on dysmorphic and genetic short stature syndromes and transitional care.

Owing to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s meeting will be fully virtual. Registration will allow priority access to our meeting website, where you can watch video presentations, submit questions, and sign up to attend a live webinar. The meeting will then culminate in a live interactive webinar featuring a panel discussion with our expert Faculty on 19th November 2020.

This continuing education activity has been approved by the International Council of Nurses (ICN) for the award of 4 International Continuing Nursing Education Credits (ICNECs).

This programme is made possible thanks to an educational grant received from: Merck Healthcare KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
