Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the conference organizing team, I have the pleasure to welcome you to the International Conference on DIABETES ICD which will be held on 28th April, 2017 Roda Al Murooj Hotel in Dubai, UAE.

As you know diabetes is affecting the globe in a pandemic manner with its complications and life threatening comorbidities. Middle East is one of the regions with highest prevalence of the disease and the number of affected people in the area is expected to double by 2040. However, I believe that, together, we can face this pandemic. We can work to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes and stop this life threatening disease. We can improve the standards of health care we provide diabetic patients to help them enjoy their life, delay and prevent the complications of the disease.

The conference organising committee developed an exciting program to address the basics and the recent updates in diabetes. This will be introduced by expert endocrinologists and diabetologist with a big deal in this field.

We are targeting all health care professionals who are interested in diabetes, including

  • - Endocrinologists, Diabetologists
  • - Internists and general practitioners
  • - Primary health care and family physicians
  • - Dietitians and diabetes educators
  • - Medical students
  • - All health care providers including nurses engaged and interested in diabetes

We wish you insightful and highly scientific conference that will enrich your experience in management of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients.
We wish you enjoyable time in Dubai.
