1° Congreso Argentino de Estudiantes de Farmacia : C.A.E.F.
Place: San Luis – Argentina
Date: 7,8, and 9 of November
The first congress that AEFRA organized was a success. For this activity, students from seven different Universities from Argentina and from three universities from Colombia met.
The congress had a lot of different activities as: conferences, workshops, student’s conferences, posters exhibition, visits to laboratories of production of medicines and workshops to elaborate alcohol gel and Emulsions with vitamins A and E. About the social events, the congress counted with opening ceremony at Terrazas del Portezuelo, parties and Gala Dinner at Sierras Hotel.
The topic of the congress was “the pharmaceutical science and the drug policy”, for cover this topic we brought speakers of excellence like Daniel Alvarado (Presidente de Farmaceuticos sin Fronteras Argentina), Ricardo Aizcorbe (Presidente de la Conferderación Farmacéutica Argentina), Jose Cid, Andrea Paura, Vicente Fusco, Fernando Suvire, Daniel Enriz, Elisa Petenatti, Lilian Pelzer and more.
We made one conferences to present with the CP from ACEQF , Juan Enciso Vargas, our associations and also to present IPSF-PARO.
We could also establish our first two AEFRA regional’s in La Rioja and Chaco.
About of sponsorship we did can take good partners too. This helped us to make a really cheap congress with a lot of good activities of big quality. Our main sponsor was the Gobierno de la Provincia de San Luis, and we counted with the collaboration of: Universidad Nacional de San Luis, Confederación Farmacéutica Argentina, Farmacéuticos sin Fronteras Argentina, Farmacia El Chorrillo, Laboratorios Puntanos, Laboratorio Ecochem, Colegio de Farmacéuticos de San Luis and Colegio de Farmacéuticos de San Juan.
After the congress we invite everyone to participate in one “post congress tour” of one afternoon and a lot of participants came for know our beautiful province.
In conclusion, the congress was an amazing and unforgettable experience for the Reception Committee and the participants. We learned so much about the organization of big events and IPSF was discovered for a lot of new people.
