Welcome Note


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are proud to announce that the 3rd China Congress on Controversies to Consensus in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy) will take place in Shanghai, China on May 19-21, 2016.

The success of the 1st and 2nd China CODHy Congress which took place in Shanghai, China in 2012 and 2013, highlighted the importance of holding the China CODHy Congress in order to continue to examine and debate the specific issues China 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 3rd China CODHy Congress will emphasize issues related specifically to China in terms of epidemiology, genetics, diagnostics, typical complications and distinctive responses to treatments. The scientific program will also explore the unique treatment/management of diabetes, obesity and hypertension specifically in China, in comparison to the rest of the Asia Pacific region. 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.

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.

We invite you to join us at the 3rd China CODHy Congress and we look forward to seeing you in Shanghai in May.
