MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENTpresident

Greetings from the organizers of the 3rd International Conference on Medical and Health Sciences (ICMH) 2017. Our theme for this year is “Lifestyle related Diseases – Challenges and Opportunities”. I am extremely excited to invite all our esteemed participants for this very important scientific event, annually organized by the University.

The main objective of the conference is to;

  • Enable the exchange of ideas and knowledge on lifestyle related diseases;
  • Bring together all level of health professionals to discuss on the challenges and opportunities related to Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs);
  • Provide opportunity for our local researchers to exhibit their research findings and facilitate research and clinical interdisciplinary collaborations with international experts and;
  • Mitigate the prevalence of NCDs in the societies through provision and promotion of healthy lifestyles education.

With overwhelming participation in the previous conferences and excellent feedback from the participants, we are encouraged and motivated to work harder and extend our warm welcome to all the aspiring health professionals to participate in the 3rd ICMH 2017.

Besides well addressed master theme, we have Pre-Conference Workshop addressing on various sub-themes. I am optimistic that both the Pre-Conference Workshop and the Conference will be educative and beneficial for the health professionals from within and outside the country.
