Welcome to the Annual AGORA Conference 2022

We' ve built a long standing relationship based on trust

Dear Colleagues,

Isocrates -not Socrates-, one of the most important orators of Classical Greece, who lived in Athens from 436 to 338 BC, stated that:

Πειρώ τω μεν σώματι είναι φιλόπονος, τη δε ψυχή φιλόσοφος.
(You should try to be diligent about the body and a philosopher about the soul).

As Chair of the 2022 Conference Task Force and  President of AGORA Federation, it is my great pleasure to invite you all to Lisbon, Portugal on September  16-17, 2022 where the heart of AGORA Federation will beat.

During the conference, we will try to answer the question  “Future Directions for Southern European Patients’ Organizations”.

Our highly qualified program, the reputable presenters and the venue, altogether, form a powerful motivation for our  20 members associations to attend the conference.

The conference will be held on-site while all sessions will be recorded and uploaded to our conference website, for on-demand use after the conference.

You are all warmly welcomed to Lisbon, to share your ideas and your questions, but above all to support our strategies, aiming to reduce the impact of RMDs on those afflicted and to improve their social position and quality of life.

My warmest regards,


Andri Phoka
President of AGORA and
Chair of the Conference Task Force
