Regional specialists to probe latest hormones-diabetes links

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, December 27 - 2012 @ 12:36

The two-day conference, on January 11 and 12 at ICLDC’s Abu Dhabi facility, will feature 24 specialist sessions and interactive workshops led by seasoned experts, including Imperial College London’s Professor Karim Meeran who says, “The programme content will keep endocrinologists at the specialty’s cutting edge. Topics being explored will include the latest thinking on thyroid, calcium metabolism and the metabolic syndrome.”

“ECU 2013 is designed as an interactive event. Rather than have a run of lectures, we have workshops involving actual case studies with the experts addressing questions and presenting best practice scenarios,” explained Professor Meeran.

“This is a very good continuous learning model and the real time discussions will benefit attendees, providing essential training for all trainees and an update for established endocrinologists, allowing them to participate in discussions on the best course of treatment. The interactive structure provides a great ideas exchange platform for expert consultants as they can benefit from fresh ideas and suggestions by participants; it’s a real two-way process,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, Professor Philippe Bouchard, President of ESE and a leading author with more than 300 published works on endocrinology to his name, confirmed the presence of sector experts such as the UK’s Professor Peter Trainer, Professor Wilmar Wiersinga from The Netherlands and ICLDC’s Medical & Research Director and Consultant Endocrinologist, Dr Maha Taysir Barakat.
