International Conference on Vitamin D Deficiency and Human Health – MENA Conference
March 24, 2016 - March 25, 20161200AED
The 5th International Conference on Vitamin D Deficiency and Human Health is planned to be held at Jumeirah Etihad Towers Hotel in Abu Dhabi on 24th – 25th March, 2016.
Despite the numerous studies about the association between vitamin D and different health
outcomes, there are still controversies defining the adequate vitamin D status, daily intake needed and the potential adverse health consequences of its deficiency. To date, there are various reports signifying vitamin D deficiency impact in autoimmune processes, several cancers, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, metabolic syndrome and pregnancy complications; however conclusive evidence about a causal relationship is still missing.
This year meeting will focus on the latest research and clinical practice of vitamin D and its impact on human health throughout the life cycle. The program will include state of the art lectures on recent updates in the early detection, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of vitamin D deficiency and its role in human health.
We believe this event will be an important meeting point to inspire and connect leaders, decision makers, doctors, scientists, technologists, public servants and academics to enhance the awareness, quality and safety practices to understand and prevent vitamin D deficiency and how best to bring it to fruition in policy and practice for government and private sector.
Please take this opportunity to networking with professional colleagues, creating and strengthening academic and clinical, national and international collaborations.
