Welcome words

It is our pleasure to invite you to the Follow-Up Course to the 2017 “Training in Pediatric Intensive Care and Neonatal Echocardiography” (TINEC) organized jointly by pediatric cardiologists, intensivists and neonatologist from the University Hospital of Lausanne and Geneva, Switzerland.
