The 2nd Abu Dhabi Advanced Rheumatology Review Conference (ADARRC) will take place from 13-15th October, 2012 in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. This scientific educational event brings together 18 of the world’s leading Rheumatology experts to present and share their valuable clinical knowledge and their latest basic and clinical research findings in a review course. The ADARRC is a three-day scientific and educational meeting designed to keep participants/delegates at the cutting edge of developments in the fields of Rheumatology and Clinical Immunology.
Mafraq Hospital is one of the key supporters of the event with members of their team on the organizing committee. Dr Mustafa Al-Maini, MD, Msc FRCPC, Head of Rheumatology, Allergy and Clinical Immunology Department, Consultant Rheumatologist, Allergist, Clinical Immunologist, ADARRC Conference Director at Mafraq Hospital is responsible for bringing this event to the UAE. He said of the event: ‘Mafraq Hospital and I were delighted with the success of the first ADARRC conference which was held in Abu Dhabi in 2011. The ADARRC is designed for Rheumatologists (adult & pediatric), internists, orthopaedic surgeons, dermatologists and all healthcare professionals with an interest in Rheumatic and Autoimmune Diseases and this conference allows for detailed, interactive learning and sharing to take place.’
The conference will cover multiple selected topics in paediatric and adult rheumatology as well as experimental innovative therapies presented by key opinion leaders in Rheumatology. To allow rheumatologists to ask and discuss questions important to their clinical practice and exchange expert opinions, the review conference is also offering workshops similar to the ‘meet the Professor session’ of the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) and the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) to tackle recent innovative knowledge and expertise on particular topics.
The Abu Dhabi Advanced Rheumatology Review Conference is an annual event with an attendance of about 400 delegates each year from all over the GCC.
