( Director SKIMS & EOSG)
It is indeed a matter of great pleasure that our institute is organizing 2nd J&K Medical Science Congress (JKMSC 2017) from 10th -12th May,2017 and 1st Annual Conference of Metabolic syndrome-Prediabetes-PCOS Society (M P PCOS CON 2017) from 12th -13th May, 2017. It is a proud moment for my Institute and I must laud the initiative of Department of Science and Technology and the M P PCOS Society who are co-sponsoring the twin events. The theme of the congress is “Non communicable diseases (NCDs) in Developing Nations”
I am confident that the congress will provide an opportunity for the students, research scholars, paramedics, and clinicians from all medical and surgical disciplines to share their knowledge, information and experience. The Medical Congress will act as an interface among these disciplines for better coordination and synchrony among these disciplines. Many international and national speakers while interacting with our clinicians, scientists, researchers and stakeholders will be of immense help to improve the research and development activities in the state of Jammu &Kashmir. A strong scientific collaboration is expected as the outcome of this congress
I wish good luck to all the participants and the events a grand success.

As you are aware that there is a burgeoning epidemic of various Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) such as Obesity, Hypertension, Diabetes mellitus, Cardiovascular diseases, PCOS, fatty liver etc. which are mostly attributable to recent changes in the life-style especially among the developing nations. Keeping in view the fact that most of these disorders have common etiological factors, metabolic derangements and therapeutic strategies, a broad platform named as Metabolic syndrome-Prediabetes-PCOS Society (M P PCOS Society) has been initiated. The society is a scientific body of professionals belonging to multiple disciplines to promote education, research and awareness among lay public, researchers and clinicians about these conditions. The 1st Annual Conference of Metabolic Syndrome-Prediabetes-PCOS Society (M P PCOS CON 2017) is to be held in tandem with 2nd J&K Medical Science Congress (JK MSC 2017) to be organized by Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Srinagar in collaboration with JK Universities, Medical Colleges, Dental Colleges and Directorates of Health Services. This congress is being co-sponsored by Department of Science & Technology and M P PCOS Society. In view of this, the theme of the congress this year has been chosen to be ''NCDs in Developing Nations”. On behalf of the Organizing Committee of these twin events, I cordially invite you to participate in these scientific bonanzas. We at the organising secretariat of these twin meetings are working hard under the leadership of Patrons, Co-patrons to make them academically and culturally enriching events for all of us. We wish all the participants an enjoyable stay in the Paradise on Earth.
