Welcome Note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are proud to announce that the 4th Latin America Congress on Controversies to Consensus in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy) will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, March 16-18, 2017

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd Latin America CODHy Congresses were held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2010, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2012 and Panama City, Panama in 2014. These Congresses were devoted to locally oriented, evidence-based discussions amongst chairpersons, speakers and the audience.

Academically, the 4th Latin American CODHy Congress will raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in the fields of Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension in an exciting debate forum. The Congress will promote excellence in these fields by seeking to shed light on ongoing and challenging debates and to bridge gaps between the expansion of information and its consolidation in clinical practice.

Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the Congress aims at reaching up-to-date and agreed-upon answers to ongoing debates even when data remains limited, through evidence-based medicine and expert opinion. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in this vibrant meeting which will facilitate discussions on the shared experiences and opinions of leading local and international experts. The 4th Latin America CODHy Congress will emphasize issues related to the region in terms of epidemiology, genetics, diagnostics, typical complications and distinctive responses to treatments.

We look forward to your participation in this exciting academic Congress.
