We are proud to announce that the 1st Asia Pacific Symposium on Controversies to Consensus in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy) will take place in Shanghai, China, November 4-7, 2010.

The first and the second World CODHy Congresses which took place in Berlin in 2006 and in Barcelona in 2008, with the participation of 4,500 physicians all together, are the first scientific meeting of its kind focusing on hot topics facing the clinician today.

Based on the success of the previous meetings and on feedback from the participants – the CODHy-Asia Pacific Congress is planning to include multiple controversies and debates as well as plenary sessions discussing innovations in the field.

We will also include discussions on several of the large ongoing clinical studies that are scheduled to end during 2009-2010 in order to resolve controversies and reach a consensus. The Asia Pacific Symposium will be more locally oriented. It will focus on typical/classical diabetes issues related to the region in terms of epidemiology, genetics, diagnostics, typical complications and distinctive responses to treatments.

This Symposium will provide a broader stage for oral presentations from the regional population. Central debates on the various relevant issues will also be translated into the local regional language, thereby providing most of the professionals with a better understanding of the topics. At least 50% of the Faculty will be "local", in order to facilitate the involvement of a large number of participants in the debates, and to discuss typical regional problems.

We would be pleased to have you among the participants of this exciting congress.
