Dear Industry Practitioners,
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to Singapore in November 2014 as we jointly host the 10th IDF-WPR 2014 Congress and 6th AASD Scientific Meeting.
The global epidemic of diabetes is a most serious medical and social problem in all parts of the world including the Western Pacific Region, which has the highest prevalence of diabetes, heterogeneous pathophysiology, and diverse ethnicities and cultures. Singapore, like the rest of the world is struggling with increasing prevalence rates of diabetes.
The continuing battle against diabetes requires an alliance of people with diabetes, healthcare professionals, scientists and policy makers. The Congress would be an ideal focal point to exchange ideas on diabetes research, prevention, management and education. We aim for an exciting scientific meeting, a time to renew friendships and to network and enjoy the best Singapore has to offer.
Singapore is an excellent destination city with good conference facilities, a wide-range of hotel accommodation, easy transportation connections, a safe environment, varied food choices and enjoyable shopping and leisure attractions.
We look forward to meeting you in November 2014!
Dr Kevin Tan
