Dear colleagues and sponsors,


I am sorry to announce the cancellation of the Masterclass "Instrumental Evaluation of Oropharyngeal Dysphagia" (2020). After internal consultation, the date of May 15th, 2020 remains unsustainable due the corona crisis. We are very grateful for the interest in the masterclass, which was reflected in the number of registrations despite the difficult period we are all in. We will refund the registration fee and sponsor money paid by you. At the moment it is difficult to set a new date because we are not sure what the course of the corona crisis will be. However, we are determined to organize a new masterclass and will keep you informed in case of a new date.


It remains for me to say that we hope that you and your family stays healthy and hopefully we will see each other again in the masterclass in the future.

Also on behalf of the other speakers and the organizing secretariat,


Laura Baijens

ENT specialist / Head and neck surgeon
