Date: 17 - 18 February 2016 Congress, 19 February Workshop

Location: Uppsala, Sweden

Dear friends,

A warm welcome to Uppsala University!

We are very happy to host the 3rd European Congress on Preconception Health and Care at Uppsala University. Uppsala is an old city situated 70 kilometres north of Stockholm. Uppsala University was founded in 1477. We have 40.000 students. Each student has a bike and they bike quite fast so take care when you cross the roads.

Our congress has attracted many experienced researchers and we are proud of having such an interesting program. Preconception care entails risk assessment, health promotion, counselling, and intervention directed to women and men in fertile ages. In our exciting multidisciplinary meeting international experts will introduce and discuss the latest available evidence and different approaches to improve preconception health and care as well as future development in the field.

The Uppsala Medical Society has a scientific Journal that is 150 years old. Open access is free of charge. Key note speakers have the opportunity to write an article in a supplement in Upsala Journal of Medical Sciences.

The congress is organized by the PrePreg Network, and Uppsala University.

Welcome to Uppsala!

Tanja Tydén

Congress president
