The ENDO 2020 leadership is pleased to announce that Dr Ricardo Dib (SOBED) and Dr Asadur Tckekmedyian (SIED) will serve as co-chairs for the ENDO 2020 Local Organizing Committee. With no doubt their help in facilitating communication and close relationship within the local community in Brazil and Latin America will ensure that the Second World Congress of GI Endoscopy incorporate the particular needs and expectations for the hosting region.
