Welcome Message



Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the scientific committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to Abu Dhabi Annual International Conference on Vitamin D Deficiency and Human Health which is planned to be held on 15th – 16th March 2018 at Jumeirah Etihad Towers Hotel in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Evidence has shown that adequate levels of Vitamin D may prevent multiple bone disorders such as rickets in children; and Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia, Osteopenia, in adults. Vitamin D Deficiency is thought to be a widespread public health problem globally; being more prevalent in places with limited sun exposure and in sunny countries like the United Arab Emirates and the whole of Middle East.

Despite the numerous studies about the association between vitamin D and different health outcomes, there are still controversies defining the adequate vitamin D status, daily intake and the potential adverse health consequences of its deficiency. To date, there are various reports signifying vitamin D deficiency impact in autoimmune processes, several cancers, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, metabolic syndrome, neurological disorders, and pregnancy complications; however conclusive evidence about a causal relationship is still missing.

The main theme of the conference this year is “Vitamin D Deficiency from Prevention to Treatment”. The meeting will focus on the latest research and clinical practice of vitamin D and its impact on human health throughout the life cycle. The program will include state of the art lectures on recent updates in the early detection, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of vitamin D deficiency and its role in human health.

Prominent international speakers and leading experts from various specialties will provide comprehensive, up-to-date, research-based answers to the most frequent questions that arise at patient’s bedside in everyday practice.

We believe this event will be an important meeting point to inspire and connect leaders, decision-makers, doctors, scientists, technologists, public servants, and academics to enhance the awareness, quality and safety practices to understand and prevent vitamin D deficiency.

We encourage you to join us for one of the exciting events we are planning and experience firsthand the pride we take to improve the health of our people in the UAE and the region.

We look forward to welcoming you all in March 2018 in the magnificent city of Abu Dhabi

This is an opportunity not to be missed!
