5th COMBO Endocrinology International Course

Eden Hotel Anavyssos29 September - 1 October 2017

The 5th Combo Endocrinology – an international course with live workshops – was held in Anavyssos, Athens, from September 29 to October 1, 2017, attracting more than 100 attendees from all over Europe. This year’s theme was “Subclinical Endocrinopathies and Diabetes: To treat or not to treat?” The Course was organized by Professor Evanthia Diamanti-Kandrakis, Director at the HYGEIA & MITERA Hospital Endocrinology & Diabetes Departments, who manages to attract a large number of endocrinology specialists every year.

This year, more than 35 speakers and professors from around the globe shared their expertise on almost all fields of clinical endocrinology. Apart from attending lectures, the participants had an active part in meet-the-expert sessions and various presentations on subclinical and diabetes cases relating to metabolism, the pituitary gland, the thyroid, the adrenal glands, the bones and the reproductive system. The participants got involved in discussions and exchanged views, gaining immense educational and practical knowledge.

We cannot but congratulate the organizers for this great event, which is supported by the European Society of Endocrinology, the Hellenic Endocrinology Society and HYGEIA Group. We are looking forward to the next Combo Endocrinology Course, to be held on October.

Here is a testimonial from one of the doctors who attended the Course from Belgrade:

Dear Professor Diamanti-Kandarakis, 
I am a doctor from Belgrade, who participated in this year’s Combo. I just wanted to express how satisfied I am with the entire conference, and congratulate you for the great vision, great concept, and immaculate organization! The general theme of the conference was very exciting, lectures were fantastic, and of course, I enjoyed the workshops immensely! 
I hope you will keep the tradition alive, and hope that both I and my colleagues will be able to participate in the future. 
Kind regards,
