Prof. Dr. Norlaila Mustafa
Scientific Chairperson
MDES Virtual Conference 2022

Hello and Welcome!

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe amidst the COVID pandemic. We have not been able to organize any event for the last two years. This year, Malaysian Diabetes Educators Society (MDES) has decided to organize the first ever virtual conference.

In recent years, we witnessed a significant increase of diabetes prevalence globally, not to mention its complications. To curb this, educating both the healthcare professionals as well as the patients is important. There have been many joint efforts to achieve this, and we hope the two-and-half day conference would help participants expand their knowledge in educating the public and patients with diabetes.

There will be plenty of knowledge enhancing activities such as plenary lectures, symposia, case studies and even debate! All delivered by esteemed members of faculties, and I can assure you will not be disappointed. The crux of this conference will be the use of digital technologies and this has been increasingly adopted after the outbreak of covid-19 pandemic.

We request the participants to register early and make use the time throughout the conference to the best of their abilities. Let us take the opportunity to network and learn from each other in this conference. We are looking forward to warmly welcome you.
