The ESOT Hesperis course is an introductory course on organ transplantation aimed at young professionals who are entering the field and wish to gain an advanced overview on the key areas of transplantation.
The 2021 online edition of Hesperis, which kicked off on Monday, March 22, features weekly live sessions where participants and faculty have the opportunity to interact and discuss hot topics and case studies.
Some of the sessions feature special guests from the world of transplantation, and we are delighted to announce that patient representatives will join us for two sessions.
Jan Shorrok, Executive Officer at Give a Kidney, will join the first live session of the unit on Organ donation, on April 30, 2021, to share her experience as a kidney donor and her work with Give a Kidney.
Pisana Ferrari (AIPI – Italian Pulmonary Hypertension Association) and Daniele Cima will join the second live session of the unit on Recipient management, on May 14, 2021, to share their experiences and perspectives as transplant patients.
