The Saudi Diabetes & Endocrine Association is the oldest charitable organization in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It was created to raise the level of awareness of the community at large; regarding the importance of leading healthy lifestyles to prevent the spread of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and its complications.
SDEA's two arms to fulfill its mission are public events as well as scientific conferences, workshops, and symposia.
This 3rd International Conference is a culmination of its continuous endeavors to enrich the scientific community.
As the Chairman, it is my pleasure that the Endocrine Society has joined hands for the first time with a Saudi organization to build upon previous successes.
I look forward that such collaboration becomes a continuous constant.
I wish all attendees an enriching three-day experience that is useful to them in their daily medical practice.
To arrive to this point of SDEA's efforts to maintain scientific gatherings of this magnitude, the process started end of April 2016.
The fruits of the organizing committee's hard work paid off. It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to SDEA's 3rd International Conference, "Highlights of Endo".
This could not have happened without the acceptance of the premier body in the field of endocrinology, the Endocrine Society. This is its first collaboration of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Collaboratively, we have been able to attract the best Subject Matter Experts in the field; nationally, regionally and internationally.
We hope the upcoming three days will be to your satisfaction in the sharing of knowledge, experience, and intellectual exchange.
