Dear colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to inform you that the Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism Hong Kong (EDM HK) 3rd Annual Meeting will be held on 17-18 October 2020 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The meeting is jointly organized by the Department of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong, Diabetes Centre and Osteoporosis Centre of Queen Mary Hospital. The event provides a platform for practicing clinicians to share with each other the most updated information and knowledge on endocrine diseases, which include diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid and other metabolic disorders. Last year, over 600 healthcare professionals had registered at our meeting and all participants shared a wonderful learning experience. On behalf of the organizing committee, we look forward to meeting you in EDM HK 2020.
