Welcome Note

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us in the inaugural Diabetes, Obesity, and Cardiovascular Diseases Summit (DOCS), taking place on March 23-24, 2018 at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

This multidisciplinary, comprehensive symposium aims to provide participants with the latest, evidence-based and state of the art therapies to treat obesity and metabolic diseases. The program is specifically developed to allow for exchange of the new data and treatment strategies available to address the broad-spectrum metabolic diseases associated with obesity. Because of the worldwide epidemic of obesity and the significant health burden of associated diabetes and cardiovascular disease, the focus of this conference will be unique and allow for multidisciplinary and broad approach across spectrum specialties.
