WELCOME NOTE

Dear Colleagues,

 

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the 2nd Emirates Pediatric Endocrine Congress at the Roda Al Murooj Hotel in Downtown Dubai, United Arab Emirates on April 18-19, 2018.

 

Building on the success of last year’s congress, the Scientific Committee has compiled a comprehensive two-day program highlighting the current challenges and clinical development in pediatric endocrinology. The topics of the congress present the newest updates in management and diagnosis of diabetes, growth and puberty disorders, thyroid disease, calcium and bone disorders delivered by renowned pediatric endocrinology experts in the UAE. Moreover, dedicated time slots for workshops have been allocated to allow delegates a more interactive, hands-on experience to keep abreast of the latest developments and future perspectives from within the field.

 

This is a great opportunity to meet and network with colleagues, both national and regional, while expanding existing connections or creating new ones. Last year, more than 300 healthcare professionals joined the first edition of the meeting and it is our expectation that this year we will go beyond attracting more than 400 delegates to join us.

 

On behalf of the EPEC, we are looking forward to welcoming your participation in this unique educational experience and hope to see you all engaged in the congress.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jamal Al Jubeh
Congress Co-Chair
Chairman of Pediatrics, Consultant Pediatric Endocrinologist
