ICCBH meetings provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of current basic and clinical science in the field of bone metabolism and bone mass in children, adolescents and young adults.
The International Conference on Children’s Bone Health (ICCBH) was started in 1999 by an international group of independent clinicians and researchers interested in bone metabolism and bone mass in children, adolescents, and young adults. Five conferences were organised successfully by members of the Organising Committee, the last being in Cambridge, UK, in 2009. In 2011 it was decided to approach an international association for administrative support and we have subsequently made an agreement with the European Calcified Tissue Society who will manage the conferences on the Organising Committee’s behalf.
The Rotterdam meeting in 2013 was attended by over 300 delegates from 45 countries.
Upwards of 300 attendees are expected at the 2015 meeting and will include:
On completion of the conference programme, the participant will enhance their understanding of a contemporary approach to clinical and basic paediatric bone science as related to:
Inherited and acquired bone disorders
Effects of chronic illness on muscle and bone
Bone signalling and metabolism
Continuing Medical Education (CME)
CME accreditation will be applied for.
