Our Medical Experience:
Prior to setting up DeSouza Associates Lida worked in the pharmaceutical industry, for GSK and in her penultimate role she was actively involved in organising meetings and events, working closely with marketing and clinical teams to fulfil agreed plans, pre and post launch of various drugs.
Lida DeSouza has acted as Secretariat to the Antiviral Group of The International Society for Influenza and Other Respiratory Virus Diseases (ISIRV) for over 7 years. The ISIRV-Antiviral Group was formerly known as NISN and we have worked with NISN since 1998.
Under the ISIRV-AVG umbrella, DeSouza Associates has been involved in organising five international medical conferences: Brazil in 2011, Vietnam in 2012, Japan in 2014, USA (Texas) in 2015 and we have just completed the 5th ISIRV-AVG Conference in Shanghai, China.
DeSouza Associates have organised and been involved with these medical conferences from concept to conclusion. We have been involved in all the expected client, delegate and speaker liaison responsibilities, management of abstracts submitted for oral and poster presentation and producing a Programme & Abstract Book, which also entailed collating speaker bios, photos and abstracts and creating an author index.
Other activities include managing ISIRV/GISAID/WHO Workshops in Capetown, Paris, Hong Kong & Chicago. We were involved in all the co-ordination of these Workshops.
