Regional Conferences

The Union’s members work together to organise regional scientific conferences bringing together experts to focus on topics of importance to public health in the region. These events provide an opportunity to present region-specific research, discuss innovative local programmes and offer training targeted to regional needs.

The Union is divided into seven regions to help address lung health and related issues from a regional perspective. Members can network with colleagues who face the same regional challenges and contribute to The Union's deep understanding of local issues.
