The survey won 2nd place in the "free topic" category.

The event, which is the most relevant in the field of coloproctology in the country, is an annual scientific meeting, held under the coordination of the Brazilian Society of Coloproctology – SBCP. The congress brings together specialists in coloproctology, resident physicians and students, which is why it has great scientific and professional importance.

As for the placement, Dr. Glícia reveals that she felt very fulfilled, “because the award is a reflection of teamwork, done with great dedication”. The CEDIMI physician also highlights that the achievement demonstrates how the correct conduct of a study, from its preparation to its conclusion, is important. “In this study, as in all those carried out at CEDIMI, there was the active and indispensable participation of our students”, concludes Glícia Abreu, who was responsible for presenting the work at the congress, representing the Center.
