In an effort to more effectively treat the rising number of patients with non-communicable diseases (NCDs), health professionals are looking beyond the standard modalities of treatment and drawing on the skills of related specialists to tackle both the lifestyle and genetic challenges posed by these diseases.

Globally, NCDs kill 14 million people between the ages of 30 and 70 every year (Source: World Health Organisation, 2014). They drastically reduce a person’s quality of life, causing long-term suffering. Most importantly, there is a significant preventable component.

The Discovery Health Summit is a specialised forum aimed at treating clinicians wanting to understand the latest evidence-based developments on NCDs from leading international experts.

This event is about sharing the latest information in medical thinking and practice so that your patients can benefit from the exciting new treatment modalities which are transforming the management of these diseases.
