Message from Convener JK Med Science Congress 2017
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.
