The first IAC virtual Tutorial was a wonderful experience. Excellent organisation, first-class faculty and enthusiastic interactive registrants. All registrants had the opportunity to put their questions to the faculty during the lectures. Questions were collected and in some cases translated to be answered by the experts at the final session of each day.

Requests have been made of photos of the meeting to be shared on social media. #AMCP2020, #CitologiaMX, #IACtutorial, #IACvirtualtutorial, #IACMX
