"Pan-Arab Conference Cairo 2016 This was a wide-ranging meeting with an outstanding international faculty in the ancient city of Cairo. Seminars and Talks focused on obesity and the need for life-style changes. But other seminars dealt with molecular and genetic aspects of diabetes, the classification of diabetes and recent developments in the treatment of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Well-attended and efficiently organized, the quality of the Faculty and lively discussion within themselves and with the audience led to a most enjoyable and educational meeting"

It is always such an honor to be involved in this conference. The attendees receive such a wide variety of up-to-date topics to keep them at the forefront of nutrition care for their patients. It is such a privilege to be involved in the events. The attendees are so wonderful. When you travel to Egypt, you are treated like family -- everyone is so gracious and hospitable. I am always sad to leave. Thanks!"

"The recent 20th Pan Arab Diabetes and the Nutrition in Diabetes conferences in Cairo, Egypt were informative and inspiring. The speakers were well-respected international experts who presented the latest research and practical strategies in the prevention of diabetes and long term complications, as well as nutrition, diabetes self-management education and behavior change. The opportunity to interact with colleagues and learn from their experiences was truly inspiring. The 21st Pan Arab conference is definitely an event that should not be missed."

"The 2016 Pan Arab Conference on Diabetes was well attended and well received. The program was extensive, and the speakers came from all over the world. As usual, I met several interesting people, some of whom I hope to work with at some point. Most impressive is that the conference has been held for the past 20 years; clearly, it is an established event for providers working in the field. Cairo, as the largest city in Africa, is a fascinating place to visit. The ancient history of the pyramids and the age of the pharaohs predominate, as expected. All the guides have degrees in Egyptology, so the tours are excellent. My trip to the pyramids was the most interesting day I have spent in memory. I had a personal guide who, for 9 hours, kept me enthralled with the details of Egyptian antiquity. And of course, the ever-present near-death experiences in the kind of traffic one encounters in many countries added to the excitement. Overall, the conference and touring made for a wonderful week."

"The 20th Pan Arab Conference in Diabetes was held in the beautiful historic city of Cairo, Egypt over 4 days in March 2016. This conference has grown in popularity over the years due to the number of high quality international speakers across many topic areas ranging from Diabetic Foot management, to state of the art lectures in the management of diabetes. The scientific committee should be congratulated their outstanding achievements over the last 20 years and also for their continued hospitality to delegates and speakers.

"I attended the 20th Pan Arab Diabetes Congress in Cairo between March. 22-25. This is the second time I am attending this conference as a faculty after a gap of 15 years. I found that this is a important Diabetes conference for the Arab world where international faculty are invited to discuss 'state of the art' subject areas in diabetes, focused primarily for diabetologists and physicians from the region. The conference had an excellent program and there was ample time for discussion after the talks. The workshop concept of 90 minute presentation was interesting and interactive. The event management company Pure Spot had done excellent arrangements for the faculty as well as all the registered participants. The venue for the meeting was great and allowed a lot of interaction between faculty and participants. I really enjoyed attending this meeting."
