Ii is with regret that we must inform you that the V International Congress on Prebiotics, Probiotics in Pediatrics scheduled on October 23-25 has been cancelled. We had no choice but to take this step because there are no guarantees regarding safety for our event in the setting of the violent protests underway in Chile.
I regret any inconvenience this may cause you.
I appreciate your understanding.
Dra. Sylvia Cruchet - Congress President
