Laennec 2018 Halifax

Dear friends,

I am excited to welcome you to Halifax for our annual Laennec Liver Pathology Society meeting, June 6-9, 2018.

I attach a modified version of the presentation I gave in Bali (additional text, additional links of interest).

Registration will be $550 CAD (currently $426 USD).

Hotel Info: The accommodation information and links are also in the presentation, but I will repeat here:

We have secured a block of rooms at the Lord Nelson Hotel, where the scientific sessions will be held.  The room rate is $189 CAD/night (currently $147 USD).  The rate is available for 3 days prior to and 3 days following the meeting.  If you find a better rate on another website, the hotel will match it. Hotel rooms and rates are being held until APRIL 21

You can book on the website: https://res.lordnelsonhotel.com/booking/default.aspx?Group=38033

Alternatively (and if you would like to book dates before or after the meeting), you can contact the Reservations Department by phone at (902)423-5130 or toll free 1-800-565-2020, or by email to ask@lordnelsonhotel.com. Quote the group ID 38033 or "Liver Pathology Conference".
