WELCOME

Dear Colleagues,

 

On behalf of the Gulf Chapter of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, it is my pleasure to invite you all to attend the Eight Annual Clinical Congress happening on November 5-8, 2020.

Due to the pandemic, we have decided to hold our congress on a virtual platform following health and safety guidelines while we make endocrine care and knowledge more accessible and convenient to all delegates.

Despite the current challenges, we continue to uphold our standards in delivering an alternative high calibre meeting and have taken a more innovative step for this year’s edition. The live streaming will convene local, regional and international experts to address a range of topics surrounding endocrinology and diabetes. We strive to keep you updated with a rich scientific program that will focus on the latest clinical practices, treatment and management of relevant diseases. Through timely, insightful presentations and interactive sessions, we hope that this virtual congress reaches a broader audience in the scientific community and opens doors to new and exciting networking opportunities.

Your safety is our utmost priority, so we’re bringing this rich educational experience directly to your screens. We hope that you could join us live and participate in this online space we prepared for you.

.

Sincerely,

Yousef Saleh, MD
President, AACE Gulf Chapter
