Welcome Note


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 4th China Congress on Controversies to Consensus in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy) to be held in Shanghai, China, May 11-13, 2017.

As the key nation for the development and execution of new technology, China has led the way for innovation in novel emerging technologies. By collaborating with Israel, the ‘start-up nation', CODHy China will successfully address and highlight the importance of introducing and including digital healthwithin the treatment of diabetes, obesity and hypertension.

The great success of the previous three CODHy China Congresses held in Shanghai in 2012, 2013 and 2016 has enabled CODHy to examine and debate the specific issues China and the rest of the world faces in dealing with Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension and the various methods which Chinese Clinicians and researchers have created in order to tackle these challenges.

The 4th CODHy China Congress will create a forum for an innovative and unique discussion on digital health in diabetes, obesity and hypertension and will emphasize issues related to epidemiology, genetics, diagnostics, typical complications and distinctive responses to treatments. The scientific program will include the most dynamic and controversial topics facing Chinese and international clinicians in the fields of Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension in an exciting debate forum.

Bringing together physicians, engineers, high-tech experts and ‘start-ups' will create an opportunity for all participants to learn and further develop better treatment and create a better future in digital health.

We invite you to join us at the 4th CODHy China Congress and we look forward to seeing you in Shanghai in May.
