On behalf of the organizing committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to participate in the First Annual Arab Society for Pediatric Endocrinology Conference to be held under patronage of his Excellency the Minister of Health in Kuwait.
The conference that is to be held in Kuwait from the 21-23rd of November 2013 is the first of its kind in the MENA region. This prestigious occasion will reunite experts in the field of Pediatric Endocrine and Diabetes from around the world to share their expertise and to promote evidence based practice among endocrinologists, diabetologists, general pediatricians and family physicians as well as other professionals working with children with endocrine disorders.
Kuwait is a relatively small country located in the north-east corner of the Arabian Peninsula, but it has a rich history and thus it has many museums and places of interest for visitors. Kuwait City is home to many of the most popular destinations in the region.
The First Annual Arab Society for Pediatric Endocrinology Conference is composed of three days exiting program, which will gather together researchers, lecturers and clinicians, involved in Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes Care. The Conference will have key note session, symposia, oral and poster presentation and meet the expert sessions presented by a nationally and internationally renowned faculty, which will ensure a high scientific level of the program and nice networking opportunities with colleagues from around the world.
More than 300 healthcare professionals are expected to participate in the three days conference, held at the Courtyard Hotel by Marriott.
We look forward to your participation, particularly your insights, which can be shared during the presentations and discussion periods of all sessions.
