Dear colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to inform you that the Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Hong Kong (EDMHK) 2nd Annual Meeting will be held on 26th – 27th October 2019 at Hong Kong Convention Centre. The conference is jointly organized by the University of Hong Kong and Queen Mary Hospital. With a steep increase in the prevalence of, not only diabetes, but also other endocrine disorders such as obesity, osteoporosis and metabolic diseases both locally and globally, the EDMHK aims to provide the best platform for practicing clinicians to share with each other the most updated and comprehensive knowledge on these diseases. The meeting will encourage exchange of ideas and practical experience for better understanding and management of these conditions through lectures and illustrative cases sharing. On behalf of the organizing committee, I welcome you all to join us to join this very important conference.
