Dear colleagues and friends,
AhlanWaSahlan! Marhaba and Welcome once again!
I am proud to announce that the 7th edition of the Emirates Diabetes & Endocrine Congress will take place again from 16 - 18 February 2017 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Looking back to 2016, the congress experienced a record number of attendees reaching 2,887 delegates! This just proves that the need for education and training in the field of diabetes and endocrinology is every more important.
Every year, we gather in Dubai to discuss the ever increasing burden of diabetes in our societies and the various options as care providers we have to tackle this disease. We at the Emirates Diabetes Society know first-hand that education is the key to building a foundation on which we can reduce this burden and we as the medical community are in the forefront of this education transmission.
The global fight against diabetes and endocrine diseases continues to strengthen because of the on-going collaboration of our communities, and I have the highest hopes and confidence in that it will continue to do so!
I look forward to another successful meeting, and I welcome all new and returning participants to the congress!
Dr. Abdulrazzaq Ali Al Madani
