WELCOME NOTE

Dear Colleagues,

 

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to participate in the Third Middle East North Africa Committee for Research and Treatment in Multiple Sclerosis (MENACTRIMS) Congress which will take place from November 24-25, 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

 

The congress aim is to provide a forum of excellence in MS education and research. Building on the collective efforts of the scientific committee, the meeting will deliver state-of-the-art presentations on MS by renowned international and regional keynote speakers. The content of the meeting includes up to date information on the latest treatments, clinical research, therapeutic strategies, imaging, epidemiology, differential diagnosis, risk factors, pregnancy, and much more.

 

The congress will convene over a two-day period to present major updates through plenary sessions, scientific symposia and teaching courses. This year’s congress will also feature parallel sessions addressed to nurses in collaboration with the International Organization of MS Nurses (IOMSN) and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC), and to regional MS societies in collaboration with the MS International Federation (MSIF). In addition, the European Charcot Foundation will participate in the meeting for the first time through a scientific symposium.

 

The congress is also a great opportunity to meet and network with colleagues interested in the field of MS clinical care. More than 600 healthcare professionals from the MENA region are expected to attend. We look forward to welcoming participants from all over the world to the lively cosmopolitan city of Dubai.

Sincerely,

Prof. Bassem I. Yamout
