The 3rd World Congress on
Controversies to Consensus in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy)
Prague Czech Republic
May 13-16, 2010

We are pleased to announce that the preparations for The 3rd World Congress on Controversies in Diabetes, Obesity and Hypertension (CODHy), which will be held on May 13-16, 2010 in Prague, Czech Republic, are well under way.

The Congress will serve as a forum for discussion of specific issues that due to the tremendous amount of information in each field, still remain controversial. This applies to controversies covering all aspects of the field of
Obesity, Diabetes and Hypertension diseases involving diagnostic methodologies and therapeutic approaches.

All controversial issues will be presented and discussed by leading international experts, whom contributed to the scientific Program, including discussions on several of the large ongoing clinical studies that are scheduled to end during 2009-2010 in order to resolve controversies and reach a consensus.

The 1st and the 2nd World CODHy Congresses which took place in Berlin in 2006 and in Barcelona in 2008 attracted 4,500 physicians and were very successful. We received a positive feedback from the participants.


Selected presentations from both Congresses were published in Diabetes Care Supplement 1 & 2. Please find the links below:

We believe that the success of the 3rd CODHy Congress depends very much on the endorsement of the Lebanese Hypertension League which will benefit from a close dialogue with influential European and other countries’ physicians.
