APEC’s Expert Meeting 2020
Date: 12th November
APEC’s annual expert meeting is widely recognised as the UK’s leading meeting on hypertension in pregnancy, with speakers who are leaders in the field of pre-eclampsia and associated conditions.
Covid-19 Update (September 2020)
We are sorry to disappoint but all APEC educational resources are accessible online only for the forseeable future. Due to social distancing rules and safety we are not running ‘live’ study days. We are working closely on providing an online study day course however this will take some time and we are also fundraising for this. Our online resources – including our e-learning – are free for all, but if you would like to make a small donation of any amount we would be very grateful during these difficult times.
This year our Expert Meeting on November 12th is accessible for all who would like to register. It will be online between 13:00 and 17:00.
Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation,
