- PRESS RELEASE
Diabetes experts and European and Middle Eastern specialists will team up in Abu Dhabi next month to discuss the latest findings linking hormones to diabetes. In a regional first, more than 150 medical specialists will hear the latest findings at the third annual Endocrinology Clinical Update (ECU), a collaboration between Imperial College London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC) and the European Society of Endocrinology (ESE), Europe's leading authourity on hormones.
"ECU 2013 is designed as an interactive event. Rather than have a run of lectures, we have workshops involving actual case studies with the experts addressing questions and presenting best practice scenarios," explained Professor Meeran.
"This is a very good continuous learning model and the real time discussions will benefit attendees, providing essential training for all trainees and an update for established endocrinologists, allowing them to participate in discussions on the best course of treatment. The interactive structure provides a great ideas exchange platform for expert consultants as they can benefit from fresh ideas and suggestions by participants; it's a real two-way process," he concluded.
Meanwhile, Professor Philippe Bouchard, President of ESE and a leading author with more than 300 published works on endocrinology to his name, confirmed the presence of sector experts such as the UK's Professor Peter Trainer, Professor Wilmar Wiersinga from The Netherlands and ICLDC's Medical & Research Director and Consultant Endocrinologist, Dr Maha Taysir Barakat.
