It is my honour and pleasure to welcome you to SATS congress 2024 which is scheduled to be held in the vibrant city of Cape Town from the 22-25 of August 2024. This congress will begin with dynamic and hand-on workshops where you will have an opportunity to acquire new skills in adult and paediatric interventional pulmonology and respiratory exercise physiology (practical approach to cardio-pulmonary exercise testing). You will also have the opportunity to hear from a plethora of invited international speakers with diverse niche expertise in various aspects of respiratory medicine and thoracic health. This premier event promises stimulating knowledge exchange, invaluable networking opportunities, and insights that are focused on practical applications that will have a direct positive impact your own practice.
