YSN at SSN Annual Meeting

The 53rd Annual Meeting of SSN will be held in Interlaken on 9 - 10 December 2021. YSN organizes its own session on Thursday 9 December 16:45 - 18:00 including a YSN—Picture Challenge: we invite you to collect interesting and illustrative clinical cases and to present them in the form of an interactive "photo quiz". Each case will be presented by the author during the session and the audience will choose an answer via an online voting tool. The most original photo quiz will be awarded at the end!

Deadline for Picture Challenge submission: 1 Otober 2021.
