Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to the 10th Malaysian Endocrine and Metabolic Society (MEMS) Annual Congress (MAC) 10 which will be held from the 19th to the 21st July 2019 at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel, Malaysia. This annual event celebrates the gathering of some of world’s leading experts in endocrinology and our renowned local endocrinologists to discuss the most recent developments in the science, investigation, management and other aspects of endocrinology. This year we look forward to our invited speakers from the United Kingdom, United States of America, Australia, Philippines and Singapore. Over the years, the Congress has been recognised as a reputable platform for knowledge sharing and continue to aspire to be at the forefront in Endocrinology within the Asia Pacific region with a goal of improving disease outcomes and better patient care.
Endocrinology has gained significant amount of interest due to the increased incidences of diseases, developments in investigative and diagnostic tools and the growing understanding on hormonal dysfunctions of common hormones affecting daily living. Thus, the congress aims to dissect the complexity of these endocrine abnormalities, current and future practices, and present them with such simplicity that will excite all levels of medical care from the allied healthcare, students, general practitioners, trainees, fellows, physicians and consultants with the theme of “Simplifying the Complexity of Endocrinology”. The congress will include plenary lectures, scientific symposia, debates, small group meet the experts sessions which will address recent conundrum and controversial issues. We have the privilege of launching the much awaited Thyroid Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG). Best oral and poster presentations will be awarded within various categories. We have obtained an overwhelming support from the pharmaceutical industry to further enhance our congress.
We hope to garner the interest of participants not only from the Asia Pacific region but also from all around the world. It will also be our pleasure to host your families and friends and showcase our beautiful country Malaysia as a desirable summer holiday destination.
We look forward to welcoming you and together we will make this an exciting and successful congress.
