I am pleased to welcome you to the 3rd International Conference of the Saudi Diabetes & Endocrine Association in collaboration with the Endocrine Society, Highlights of ENDO. The Endocrine Society is proud to collaborate in this annual event which brings esteemed faculty from around the world to interact as we all reach for the same goal of advancing excellence in endocrinology.

Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world's oldest, largest, and most active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology. In 2016, the Endocrine Society celebrates its centennial. With over 18,500 members from more than 100 countries, the Society is focused on creating collaborative relationships with other endocrine Societies around the globe. We are confident that we will build lasting relationships here at this meeting and look forward to what we can learn from each other.

I want to thank the leadership of SDEA for inviting the Endocrine Society to partner in what I’m sure will be a great program.
