Chairman's Message

Dear colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the upcoming The 5th Rheumatology in General Practice Conference, which will be held on 9th May 2024 at Dasman Ballroom, Radisson Blue Hotel, Kuwait. This conference is designed to provide an engaging and informative platform for general practitioners, rheumatologists, and other healthcare professionals to come together and share their experiences and insights on the latest developments in the field of rheumatology.

The theme of this year's conference is "Rheumatology in General Practice". We have an outstanding lineup of speakers who will be sharing their expertise on a wide range of topics, including the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases, the role of imaging in rheumatology, and the management of comorbidities in rheumatology patients.

In addition to the keynote sessions, the conference will also feature interactive workshops providing ample opportunities for participants to engage with each other and learn from one another. Whether you are a general practitioner looking to update your knowledge in rheumatology or a rheumatologist seeking to stay abreast of the latest research, this conference is sure to offer something of value to you.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Rheumatology in General Practice Conference and to the opportunity to exchange knowledge, ideas, and experiences with you.
