On behalf of the American Diabetes Association it gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st American Diabetes Association Middle East Congress, 4-6 December 2012, in Dubai, UAE. You won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to join your colleagues and world-renowned experts for the latest clinical information on diabetes and its complications. The program will focus on cutting-edge research and evidence-based strategies to prevent diabetes and improve outcomes in your patients. This forum will also be an excellent opportunity for the exchange of ideas and experiences with your colleagues from the Middle East.
Diabetes continues to be a global epidemic, especially in the Middle East. According to the International Diabetes Federation’s Diabetes Atlas, at least five countries in the Middle East area will be among the top ten worldwide in prevalence of diabetes by the year 2030. The overarching goal of the Congress is to support the commitment of health care professionals in the Middle East in the fight against diabetes and their efforts on behalf of people with diabetes and their families.
