3rd Latin America Congress on Controversies to Consensus in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • ComtecMed Med­ical Con­gresses is proud to announce that the 3rd Latin Amer­ica Con­gress on Con­tro­ver­sies to Con­sen­sus in Dia­betes, Obe­sity and Hyper­ten­sion (CODHy) 2014 will take place in Panama City, Panama on March 13 – 16, 2014.

    The 1st and 2nd Latin Amer­ica CODHy Con­gresses were held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2010 and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2012. These con­gresses were devoted to locally ori­ented, evidence-​based dis­cus­sions amongst chair­per­sons, speak­ers and the audi­ence. Both were vibrant aca­d­e­mic events with a regional focus and attracted a large num­ber of par­tic­i­pants from all over the world.

    By hold­ing the con­gress in a Panama, a coun­try con­nect­ing north and south, we hope to bring an even more eclec­tic and diverse audi­ence to this excep­tional aca­d­e­mic con­gress where we believe all par­tic­i­pants will ben­e­fit from the excel­lence of the sci­en­tific pro­gram and world-​renowned faculty.

    Bring­ing to the fore­front and high­light­ing the cru­cial issues and debates fac­ing clin­i­cians and patients in Latin Amer­ica, the con­gress enables an inter­ac­tion which ben­e­fits both the pro­fes­sion­als as well as the patients; accom­plish­ing the goal of CODHy to bridge gaps between the expan­sion of infor­ma­tion and its con­sol­i­da­tion in clin­i­cal practice.
