Statement from the BHAAAS President
Dear Members and Friends of BHAAAS,
The whole world is going through COVID-19 crisis and will live with its consequences for a long time. At these trying times, I would ask everyone of us to be factors of stabilization. As members of a science-based organization, we should lead by example and observe the guidelines and rules spelled out by epidemiologists. Also, please make your communities aware that in our Academy we have expertise and knowledge to help deal with the crisis in a more organized manner. If any community in Bosnia and Herzegovina wants to get assistance or guidance from the Academy, we are available any time.
As you all know, our 12th Dani of BHAAAS are scheduled to take place in Mostar, June 25 – 28, 2020. As of now, there are some indications that the crisis might subside enough to keep those dates still a feasible time for the Conference. If the situation forces us to make changes in the dates, we will move the Conference to the second half of August. We will keep a watchful eye on any new developments and, if we are forced to change the dates, we will make sure to communicate this in a timely manner.
I wish all of you and your families good health and safety. Looking forward to seeing you all at the next Dani!
Mahira Tanovic, MD, FACS
President of BHAAAS
