INVITATION
Dear Colleagues
I have pleasure in inviting you to attend the Eighth Congress to be held on Sunday 30 October 2011 at the Westcliff
Hotel, Johannesburg. The 2010 meeting was a success and we have therefore decided to retain the same format
including the international speakers. As the previous meeting was oversubscribed, I urge you to register timeously as
there are only 150 places available. They will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The organising committee and I look forward to welcoming you to the Eighth Meeting of the Southern African Society of
Thrombosis and Haemostasis.

Prof Barry Jacobson
President
