The programme aims to discuss the latest evidence in the management and treatment of common metabolic problems related to the field of diabetes, endocrinology and obesity.

This will be offering a unique opportunity for physicians across the UAE and the region to meet, network, and learn new scientific developments.

We will have world-renowned speakers coming from the UK and Middle East. Some of the leaders in the field of cardiometabolic medicine and obesity will share the latest developments in this diverse field to benefit physicians in their day-to-day clinical practices. The conference will highlight improving patient outcomes through innovation and intelligent integration.

It provides an excellent opportunity to share views, exchange knowledge and establish collaborations & networking.
