AMS Congress 2023
The AMS is pleased to advise that the 26th AMS Congress will be held at The Millennium Hotel, Queenstown, New Zealand from 1-3 September 2023.
The theme of the Congress is “Remarkable reflections on midlife and menopause”.
Dr Ashley Makepeace is Chair of the Scientific Committee and will be sure to put together an up-to-date and stimulating scientific program.
Dr Sylvia Rosevear is Chair of the Local Organising Committee and is looking forward to welcoming delegates to Queenstown to experience the beauty and adventure of this amazing destination.
As of 19 June 2023 we have had an overwhelming response to onsite registrations, especially from New Zealand attendees, which means we have reached capacity at the venue and have had to close off onsite registrations.
However, you can still register to attend the Congress as an Online attendee! Online attendance will still allow you to participate in all sessions and accrue your CPD points.
So please add the dates 1-3 September 2023 in your diaries and keep up to date about the Congress at www.amscongress.com.au
