Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Greetings on behalf of the Emirates Diabetes Society.
We are extremely proud and delighted to announce the 11th edition of the Emirates Diabetes & Endocrine Congress (EDEC) which will take place from 4th to 6th March 2021.
As we stand united against the ongoing uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we have decided to pivot our eleventh edition to a virtual meeting with the goal of providing a very engaging and meaningful experience for all the attendees.
Being a CME Accredited virtual meeting, we will be showcasing many innovations which will allow for you to engage with the speakers and other audience members. Our meeting will continue to raise the bar and has already attracted world-renowned faculty from across the globe, whilst our scientific board has developed a robust scientific program which includes, state of the art lectures, meet the expert corners, workshops, product theaters and much more for you to experience and learn from.
EDEC is a wonderful learning platform and encourages the propagation science and research and in this vein, we welcome submissions of abstracts. The best submissions, as reviewed by our Scientific Committee, will have an opportunity to receive recognitions, awards and present their content in the meeting.
