Welcome Message from Congress President:

As the Chair of Organizing Committee for the 6th GGSD Conference, I’d like to personally welcome each of you to this special event, first time to be held in Kuwait. It is an exciting time for us in the Organizing Committee to see friends and colleagues from GCC and other countries. I’d like to give you a brief idea of what you can expect and what we hope to achieve over the three days of the conference; we will have state of the art lectures presented by prominent international speakers covering different areas of diabetes and its complications. We will also have several interactive workshops on diabetic foot, nutrition, insulin therapy and education.

Announced as the Capital of Humanity, Kuwait will welcome you all in its traditional hospitality and friendliness. With a community of vast international spectrum, it will provide you an opportunity to enjoy the surroundings, culture and leisure.

Looking forward to seeing you in Kuwait to be a part of the 6th GGSD Conference that will be an ideal opportunity for professional networking that is hard to miss.
