Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 8 May, 2017:  With the objective of offering a platform for Doctors across different specialties, to come together and discuss latest treatment modalities and practices to ensure development by preventing lifestyle disorders, Aster DM Healthcare organized the fourth edition of Synerge International Medical Conference on ‘Lifestyle Disorders' on Friday, 28th April 2017.  The one day conference was addressed by specialists from across different verticals of Aster DM Healthcare, including; Aster Medcity (Kochi), Medcare Medical Centre (Dubai), Aster Hospital (Dubai) and Aster Clinic (Dubai).

Dr. Azad Moopen, Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare said “I consider lifestyle disorder as the epidemic that is going to affect mankind in the long run as a silent killer. Being one of the leading providers of healthcare services in the Gulf and India, it is our responsibility to influence positive & preventive changes in the field of medicine. The International CME on Lifestyle Disorders is aimed at developing awareness among physicians and the public on common lifestyle diseases. This International CME puts light on the key concerns of lifestyle related health issues people face, particularly in this part of the world where most people lead sedentary lifestyles. The call to hold this CME was because, lifestyle medicine is the foundation for preventing and treating numerous chronic diseases. Aster DM Healthcare focuses on building responsibility among the medical professionals to effectively promote healthy lifestyle changes to their patients by creating awareness among them to understand and effectively manage their health.”

 “As per reports, cardiovascular diseases are on the rise in UAE and are accountable for 30% of overall deaths. We often come across patients who have suffered chronic conditions like hypertension for years together without experiencing any symptoms, further preventing diagnosis of the condition. Such conditions if continue for prolonged periods lead to cardio vascular and other life threatening complications. In line with the government's vision of 2021 to achieve a health care system with reduced lifestyle diseases, this CME helps physician's keep up with current trends in the medical field. The field of medicine is a constantly evolving dynamic industry where conferences such as this will help experts improve their competence and refine their skills for overall patient experience,” said Dr. T.M. Jaison Specialist Cardiologist, Aster Clinic, UAE.

“According to the Scientific and Research Committee of the Emirates Gastroenterology Society, as of 2014, more than 30% of the population of UAE suffered from acid reflux which adds up to nearly 3 million people being affected by the disorder in the UAE today. CME's help address challenges faced by healthcare practitioners within their specialty and help to stay updated with changes in the industry. It is gives medical professionals a platform to interact with colleagues from across specialties and enhance their skills through panel discussions and interactions which in turn helps deliver the best practices for care and well-being of patients,“ said Dr. Amal Upadhyay, Consultant Gastroenterologist, Aster Hospital, UAE.

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) accredited the conference with 6 (Continuing Medical Education) CME points. The highly significant medical conference addressed by leading experts discussed key lifestyle disorders and topics, including; Bariatric Surgery, Cardiovascular imaging in the detection and assessment of heart diseases, Why treat 360 degree? The need for comprehensive patient's management, Obesity in Pregnancy, Management of hypertension-from guidelines to practice, Prevention of diabetes, New frontiers in Heart Failure management, Obesity .Pandora's Box, GERD and OSA: What is the relationship?

Aster DM Healthcare intends to host more international CME's and forums in order to share clinical expertise and updates on subjects of varied interest among the medical community in order to ultimately benefit the community at large.
