Emirates Diabetes and Endocrine Congress 2012
As quoted by Sir Michael Hirst, IDF President Elect, in the April 2012 issue (vol:57) of the Diabetes Voice; "Dubai's promotional tagline, 'The Meeting Place of the World', rang true when more than 15,000 participants gathered in Dubai for the World Congress, making it the most successful Congress ever organized by the IDF."
Nowlooking ahead, the burden is heavier; the challenge more complex and bigger; and the need to address Diabetes and Endocrine Diseases more urgent. As the Congress President, I have a vision - "To reduce the burden of the disease across our region". We are united in our stance and the foundation of this vision lies where we left-off in 2009 & 2010, i.e. Education and Knowledge Sharing. These are the corner stones to buildwhat I consider the front-line force to subjugate the disease. So with this as the premise, EDC is reiterating its efforts togather a world class panel of expert speakers, both from international and regional communities, to address a number of key areas and help develop and articulate strategies and protocols that would be beneficial both at the macro and micro level.
Ladies and Gentlemen, it gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all once again to the Emirates Diabetes & Endocrine Congress 2012 (www.edec-uae.com); the region's premier Diabetes and Endocrine education and networking Congress.The event will be held from11 to 13 October, 2012 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
