Message from the President
It is with great joy and enthusiasm that we are working to welcome you to Belo Horizonte for the XVIII SIFR, to be held from June 8 to 11, 2016.
With responsibility and great care, we are very excited to organize another great event, and will not spare any efforts to meet the collective wish expressed by colleagues who have become more and more closer to ASSOBRAFIR. We wish that everyone could share this excitement, and feel that you are already participants in the construction of this meeting, and very welcome in our city – “the Capital of all Brazilians”.
For almost 30 years, due to the desire of a group of professionals who sought to discuss science and politically organize a new area of physiotherapy, ASSOBRAFIR was created. The maturity and consolidation of a professional specialty greatly depends on the work of its members, expanding and enhancing the body of available knowledge; and in this sense, being an entity that houses the greatest experts in this field. That is ASSOBRAFIR mission — disseminate knowledge and seek an increasingly optimized effective practice.
This is the spirit of the XVIII SIFR, clearly translated by its theme: Exchanging experiences and disseminating knowledge – ASSOBRAFIR 30 Years! Certainly it will be a unique moment for updates, integration, reflection, unity and celebration, in a city that stands out for the union from the traditional to the contemporary, for the orderly urbanization coupled with exuberant nature, and a cosmopolitan environment that blends with the mining hospitality. With the inspiration of a city that is blessed for its natural beauty, “Beagá” breathes culture, arts, bohemia and gastronomy. “Beagá” is the Latin American capital of bars, and for those who enjoy a more informal bohemian atmosphere, there is no better place to visit!
Let us always be together, as it is our unity that empowers the Respiratory Physiotherapy, Cardiovascular Physiotherapy, and the Physiotherapy in Adult, Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care.
Belo Horizonte is just nearby, quick and easy!
We look forward to welcome you with open arms!

President of ASSOBRAFIR
