We are most delighted to announce that the 20th Diabetes and Cardiovascular Risk Factors – East Meets West Symposium is going to be held on Saturday and Sunday, September 29 - 30, 2018 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

This international Symposium is jointly organized by the Hong Kong Institute of Diabetes and Obesity (HKIDO) and the Faculty of Medicine of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Association for the Study of Obesity (HKASO).

This year, we have once again received stellar support from many professional associations as well as sponsors for this very meaningful Symposium. We have prepared a comprehensive scientific programme to address the educational needs of physicians, other health care professionals, and researchers in clinical and basic sciences. We are confident that this will prove to be an academically and socially rewarding experience for all delegates. 

As in the past 19 years, we are expecting more than 1,500 participants coming from the region and around the globe to join us for this important Symposium. Please mark your calendar for the latest advances and dynamics of the diabetes field through inspiring dialogues with old and new friends. For our overseas delegates, we hope you will also take this opportunity to enjoy the many facets of east and west of Hong Kong and the hospitality here. We look forward to receiving you at the East Meets West Symposium 2018!
