Dear Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Primary Care International Diabetes Symposium 2016, aiming to promote awareness about Diabetes and support healthcare professionals to deliver high quality evidence based and clinically effective care. Since the International Diabetes Federation has recently ranked Saudi Arabia as the 7th highest Diabetes prevalent country in the world, there is an ever increasing need to provide frontline healthcare providers with world class opportunities to update and refine their skills and clinical knowledge to deal with the increasing burden of this chronic condition. The scope of the symposium comprises a broad range of topics about various aspects of care for people living with diabetes, relevant to all healthcare practitioners involved in holistic diabetes care provision. This International symposium will also present an opportunity to share and discuss the latest advances and state of the art knowledge in the field. I look forward to welcoming you all to the symposium and whilst you are participating in this excellent event, please take some time to enjoy the sights of our city Jeddah which is also known as ‘The Bride of The Red Sea’.

Thank you all for attending.
Best wishes
