The Pan Arab Osteoporosis Congress to Be Held in Damascus

The 5th Pan Arab Osteoporosis Congress will start from April 28th through 30th in Damascus, where Arab and international experts and practitioners are gathering to discuss the latest data on osteoporosis research, prevention and treatment.

The conference is organized by the Pan Arab Osteoporosis Society (PAOS), in collaboration with the International Osteoporosis Foundation, and with the support of Nestlé as part of their “Nestlé Strong and Healthy Bones” initiative.

“Osteoporosis is one of the most disabling conditions of older adults and the elderly. It represents an immense human, social and economic burden,” said Dr. Gemma Adib, President of PAOS and Congress President. “Osteoporosis is a global problem, but according to latest studies Asia is the region where the increase in osteoporosis fractures will be the greatest. Specialists in this field need to continue working closely to pool data and share expertise, an objective which we hope our congress will contribute to achieving, with a view to actively stop the alarming spread of bone disease in our region.”

The fifth edition of the PAOS Congress will once again host the field’s most renowned experts from the region as well as from around the world, to share and discuss the latest data on basic and clinical osteoporosis research including new development in bone cell biology, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment.  In addition to the rich scientific program, the congress will feature important public sessions highlighting the role of and exercise in preventing osteoporosis.

“We are strongly committed to promoting bone health in the region, in cooperation with experts in the field,” said Karine Antoniades Turk, Nutritionist, Nestlé Middle East. “Through the ‘Nestlé Strong and Healthy Bones Initiative’, we put our broad resources and nutritional expertise in the service of the public at large. Our aim is to help increase awareness as to the role of the right nutrition and physical activity in building and maintaining strong and healthy bones; crucial for osteoporosis prevention.”
