Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,
We will be delighted to welcome you to Ireland’s historic capital city Dublin in November 2017 for the first European conference on Falls, Frailty & Fractures. Our aim is to take a holistic approach and to bring together researchers, clinicians, healthcare professionals and service providers in the disciplines of falls, frailty, fractures, osteoporosis, sarcopenia and nutrition, to enable cross-fertilisation of ideas and with the ultimate aim of developing better management strategies for our older patients.
Dublin is a very friendly city and there is an expression in Ireland where the locals wish you Céad Míle Fáilte which means a hundred thousand welcomes so we hope you will come and enjoy this renowned Irish hospitality in 2017.
