Lisbon City Tour on Sunday

The city centre was destroyed by an earthquake in 1755 but was rebuilt by the marquês de Pombal. This seagirt city of multicoloured houses and elegant parks and gardens has been reconstructed as a bustling modern metropolis. In fact, Lisbon was designated a European City of Culture in 1994. The general outlines of the city remain as they have for hundreds of years and is still a city of balconies and vistas. Some of the most striking of the latter can be seen from the miradouros, the terraces maintained by the municipality on seven of its hillsides.

For those interested, we will be offering an optional 3.5-hour tour on Sunday afternoon. This will not be an official part of the program, and those who will like to join this tour will need to register at the registration website or at the hospitality desk at the hotel.

For any questions regarding the conference, please contact Lidija Pecova (lidija@lepaf.org) +389 7838 8235 or Giora Sharf (giora1@inter.net.il

Currently, the CML Steering Committee is composed of six CML patient advocate leaders representing the major regions of the world plus three CML Advocates Network Founders as permanent Steering Committee members. At a Steering Committee meeting held earlier this year, new guidelines and expectations were approved for the Steering Committee.

At the upcoming CML Horizons in Lisbon, Portugal, we will be holding elections for this newly-revised CML Steering Committee. The elected individuals will not only represent their respective regions but will also work to ensure the active involvement of their region in the many activities of the CML Advocates Network.
